London is full of hidden gems, and one of them is Kingston Hill. It’s a small corner concealed between Coombe Hill, Kingston, Roehampton and Wimbledon. The area is in close proximity to wide, open spaces, including Richmond Park, with its amazing deer population. Detached homes dominate the area, offering buyers a wide choice of outstanding properties, with large gardens, security, peace and quiet, from £2 to £10 million.
With the A3 motorway just a few minutes away, residents can be in central London or in the countryside in 20 minutes on a good day.
Running from Kingston-upon-Thames town centre to the A3, Kingston Hill contains some of the area’s most desirable properties, particularly the large contemporary and period houses and mansions in a secluded network of private roads that make up the Coombe Estate.
While the average price of a home on Kingston Hill is £617,749 – 20% above the London average of £514,807 – the most desirable homes sell for five or six times that figure.
Kingston has been a town of great significance since Saxon times. It is said that in the 10th century, no fewer than seven Anglo-Saxon kings were crowned there including Athelstan in 925, who after he conquered Northumbria, could rightfully claim to be the first king of all England.
With over 300 stores, a bustling market place as well as a vibrant offer of independent shopping, Kingston is one of the biggest shopping destinations in London.
The Jewel in the Crown
Royal Richmond Park is the biggest area of open land in London. It is a site of special scientific interest and has its own large herd of wild deer that live within its bounds.
Sport is all around you in Kingston Hill. Beyond the two local golf courses, there is lots of world-class sport on your doorstep, as it is just a few miles from the All England Lawn Tennis Club that hosts the Wimbledon championships annually. A short walk or cab ride will take you to the famous gates of the grounds of the All England club, where the championships take place at the end of June into July each year.
The other famous sporting occasion starts in Putney; the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. You can stand toe to toe with the rowers as they take their vessels from the boathouse in Putney to the river, before they row 4 miles to the west at Mortlake.
Also, only five miles away is the famous Twickenham stadium, the home of English rugby, where you can watch all the top international sides play against England. If you are a soccer fan, then Fulham and Chelsea football clubs are less than 6 miles away, too – all an easy taxi ride.
