Ultra-prime developer K10 Group has released its plans for Doughty House in Richmond, London, one of London’s most important heritage restoration and legacy projects, to create a £100 million private palace. It involves the transformation of a Grade II listed manor house, gallery wing and Dower House set in one acre of landscaped gardens – once the home of the Viscounts of Montserrat – into a 38,000 sq.ft 10 bedroom residence complete with heritage state rooms and world-class leisure amenities, scheduled for completion in late 2019.
Doughty House was built in 1769 in the finest Portland stone and London brick for Sir William Richardson, located at the crest of Richmond Hill, providing spectacular views of the River Thames.
In 1786 the Georgian mansion, which resembles Highgrove House, was purchased by heiress Elizabeth Doughty and gained her name.
Property adviser to K10 Group, Peter Wetherell, Chief Executive of Wetherell, says, “The K10 Group strategy is to acquire and restore iconic historic buildings, unique pieces of British history and transform them into private palaces – a legacy for future generations. The “3 Ls Property Adage” of location, location, location now has a new partner of Vision, Vision, Vision. To have the vision and ambition to create the finest mansion in London is incredible.”
