In the three years to June 2016, prime Richmond properties gained 9.7 per cent, compared with the 1.1 per cent in prime central London. Richmond’s blend of rural and urban life, picture perfect views from the top of Richmond Hill and a 2,500 acre royal park within 15 minutes of Waterloo, have insulated prices in the royal borough from the worst of the capital’s falls.
Over the past year, as prices in prestige London postcodes fell almost 3.9 per cent, Richmond’s prime market gained 1.9 per cent. Capitalising on this, Grade II listed The Star and Garter is offering an opportunity to buy a superb luxury apartment with Richmond’s world-famous hill top view. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is for sale through Featherstone Leigh @ £2.7m.
