Enter the fashionable Georgian world in this charming Thames-side villa. An elegant 18th century villa bordering the Thames. Marble Hill was built for Henrietta Howard, mistress of George II.

Take time to explore some of the surrounding 66 acres of beautiful parkland, or walk along the Thames Path, across the bridge from picturesque Richmond village.
