Roads of Richmond - Denbigh Gardens

Updated: May 11, 2020


Denbigh Gardens, Richmond & Kings House School

Some of the last remaining fields to be developed in Richmond belonged to the Rugge-Price estate. They ran from what is now Marshgate school all the way towards the Hill as far as Park Road. Sir Charles Price who served as Lord Mayor of London lived at Spring Grove House on the estate which he purchased in 1797. It remained the family home until the 6th baronet Sir Charles Rugge-Price sold some of the land in 1904 and this is when Spring Grove Road and DENBIGH GARDENS on the West side were developed. When Sir Charles died in 1927 the remaining land was sold. The house was demolished and in 1934 the East side of Denbigh Gardens could be built up in what were the gardens of the house itself.


Denbigh Gardens is now a quiet, wide tree-lined road on the lower slopes of the Hill largely comprising a mixture of substantial detached and semi-detached early Edwardian and 1920’s family houses plus a smattering of detached modern houses, most with off-street parking and generous gardens. The road runs between Marchmont Road and Spring Grove Road leading onto Kings Road. Most houses have between four to seven bedrooms although a few houses have been converted into large apartments.


Average House Price: £3,414,000.00 (April 2020)


Local Knowledge & Neighbourhood Haunts:

It is a ten minute walk to the town centre and station, five minutes to Richmond Park and also a short stroll to the cluster of independent shops and eateries that make up Richmond Hill Village on Friars Stile Road. The village has retained its own personality free from the curse of lookalike chain-street stores, although a Sainsbury’s local has proven to be rather handy. It is also conveniently located for the parade of convenience shops, hairdressers and restaurants on the Sheen Road with the excellent Dragon Inn Chinese and Bicycle to name just a few.


Denbigh is also great in terms of school catchment, close to Richmond’s highly acclaimed and Ofsted rated outstanding St. Elizabeth’s Roman Catholic school, Vineyard and Marshgate state primary schools. All three schools were in the December 2019 Times Top 500 list of over 20,000 primary schools in the UK (actually in the top 200!). Marshgate School did particularly well, rated 34th which puts it in 13th place within the whole of London.


The independent primary school Kings House Boys School is also just around the corner. The school has 450 boys aged 3-13 years and has a state of the art gym and fully equipped theatre for 200 seats. The sports ground are in nearby Chiswick offering 35 acres of football, rugby, lacrosse and cricket nets, nine tennis courts, netball courts and an athletics track.


What The Neighbours Say:

“What makes Denbigh Gardens so special, and why so many families stay for so long, is the sense of community amongst the residents of its 36 houses. The road is sociable but also incredibly supportive with everyone looking out for each other whether buying provisions, fund raising, feeding pets, watering gardens or just keeping an eye when you are away. There is an email and WhatsApp group for the whole street (which has proven particularly invaluable during the last few weeks for the vulnerable and self-isolating), a monthly book club and regular get togethers including street parties whenever there’s a suitable excuse!”.
