Roehampton House is a landmark Grade I listed 18th century mansion situated in Roehampton, South West London. This impressive building, along with an additional two gatehouses and five garden villas has been converted into 29 exclusive properties set within four acres of magnificently restored landscaped grounds and formal gardens.

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 luxury 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.

Two beautiful show apartments designed by Vogue Interiors showcase the exclusive lifestyle that this historical building offers. Homes are fitted to a high specification, featuring Alno kitchens with V ZUG appliances, flooring throughout including marble, stone, wood and carpet and fitted wardrobes with dressing rooms to master bedrooms. The interior design throughout is glamorous and fashionable.
