Award winning developer, St James, part of the Berkeley Group, has completed the restoration of Roehampton House, a landmark Grade I listed 18th century mansion situated in Roehampton, South West London. The magnificent building, which was designed by two of Britain’s finest architects has been converted into 22 exclusive properties set within four acres of magnificently restored landscape grounds and formal gardens, offering buyers the chance to own their own slice of history. There are now just three apartments remaining. This is one of only two Grade I properties that have been converted to resin in London, the other being St Pancras Chambers.
The building was originally designed in 1712 by renowned architect, Thomas Archer, as a family home and later extended in 1910 by the famous architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens. It was then used as a convalescent home for injured soldiers during World War I, until St James acquired the building in 2006. Featuring a grand red bricked façade synonymous with its Georgian style of architecture and rising up to three floors, the main central core is then flanked by two Lutyens designed wings on either side.
All of the apartments have their own character reflecting the buildings fascinating history. A wealth of period features can be found throughout, all sensitively restored by St James and harking back to the building’s early life. Magnificent round portal windows, large, Georgian sash windows, intricate cornicing, fireplaces, terraces and roof terraces, wooden paneling and an original staircase are all key parts of the property that bring it to life and which have been subject to intensive and skilled restorative efforts.

Additional storage space and wine cellars are also available for residents. Prices range from £1,350,000 – £1,850,00.
