Converted London Home Famed For Celebrity Weddings On The Market

SLIDESHOW: Listed as 1 Spring Terrace, the former Richmond registry office now covers 4,745 square feet of residential space.

The former Richmond registry office in south London has been converted into a seven-bedroom Georgian home, making a perfect love nest for potential buyers.

Richmond, a suburban town in south London, is a place popular with well-known actors, musicians, sportsmen, artists and writers. It’s no surprise then that its former registry office has hosted many celebrity wedding ceremonies in the past, including that of Twiggy and Michael Witney in 1977; Imran Khan and Jemima Goldsmith in 1995; Brian May and Anita Dobson in 2000; and Jesse Wood and Fearne Cotton in 2014.

The last wedding took place in May 2015, and the Grade II-listed property has since been completely renovated and converted into a family home with seven bedrooms and three reception rooms.

Daniel Hutchins, head of Savills Richmond, says: “Its transformation into a magnificent Georgian home offers both traditional living and contemporary design. This property is rare for so many reasons. It’s incredibly central to Richmond, you are no more than a five-minute walk to both the town centre and train station. Its location is completed by the configuration of the property, which, unlike other traditional Georgian properties, has a great lateral footprint. It’s also an ideal family home, with a playroom and cinema room.”

Listed as 1 Spring Terrace, the property covers 4,745 square feet of space. Its main reception room is at the front of the building and has two fireplaces, herringbone wood floor, and wood-panelled walls. Towards the rear, there’s a custom-designed kitchen. It is connected to an elegant glass extension with exposed brick wall that houses the well-lit dining area and leads out to the garden that faces south east.

The property’s back garden is described as well-proportioned and walled. There’s also a deep front garden, allowing the home to be situated further back from the road.

The surrounding area is notable for the delightful Richmond Park, scenic walks by the River Thames and a wonderful array of cafés and restaurants, including one-Michelin-starred Petersham Nurseries.
