Jasper Conran’s Former Home Is Up For Sale

Standing tall on the banks of the River Thames in Chiswick, Walpole House is a magnificent, Grade I listed property with an impressive legacy: previous inhabitants include Thomas Walpole, nephew of Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole; Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland and Mistress of King Charles II; and British novelist William Thackeray, who was educated there.

Though its jaw-dropping Georgian façade and lush grounds might give the elegant air of a country estate, this beautiful property is only six miles away from Mayfair.  It boasts almost 9,000 square feet of internal space encompassing seven spacious bedrooms and five reception rooms. From the striking entrance hallway, you can explore the dining room, kitchen, breakfast room and sitting room, or head to the lower ground floor to find a second kitchen, utility area and cellar, plus a gym and steam room. A further reception room on the first floor offers particularly incredible river views thanks to multiple sash windows.

Outside, there is a double garage with private gated parking, and historic walled gardens featuring ornamental ponds and a greenhouse. If you’re on the hunt for even more space, there is an additional river-edged garden with access to the Thames.

With sprawling rooms, gorgeous views and so much outside space not to mention a dizzying price of £16.5 million this property is a rare gem.
