Park Road


On a sunny spring day this road felt like a piece of heaven. With it's gentle incline, pleasing tree-lined vista and attractive collection of large properties with long front gardens, it's easy to see why this is one of Richmond's most revered roads. The scene is classically, undeniably, wonderfully English. But to step through the door of this tall, handsome period home is to enter another world. Goodbye England, Benvenuti Italia! 


Drama, romance and opulence, the effect is truly mesmerising. Undiluted creative vision has been executed with confidence and flair. This isn't just a nod to Italy, it's a love letter, and specifically to the Italianate style. You know you're in England, of course you are, but your eyes deceive you...For all the world, you could be in a villa perched high up on the Amalfi coast! 


With the grand fireplaces, ornate ceilings, solid wood doors and exquisite cabinetry, cost was not a consideration. A flawless finish of the highest quality was. 


And if classical Italian isn't your thing, fear not. Much of the effect can be attributed to styling: the colour schemes and the

many pictures and artefacts that adorn this property. A stunning pared- down aesthetic would be achieved with a lick of paint in a neutral palette. 


But, be under no illusion - opulence aside, this a very practical family home. Everything's been considered with utmost thought. The layout is balanced and perfect. Every room, every cupboard, every shower, every sink is precisely where it should be. 


Outside, the garden, symmetrically designed for pure visual pleasure, maintains strict Italianate design principles. Terraces are laid out with manicured evergreens, scented herbs and mediterranean plants that perfume the air with botanical scents. It's an idyllic spot just to enjoy the moment and feel gratitude for your immense good fortune. 


The location is exceptional. Life up here on the hill moves to its own relaxed rhythm, yet its only a gentle amble down to the town centre. The manifold delights of Richmond Park are a few minutes away and, closer still, are the independent cafes, shops and restaurants of Richmond Hill Village.
