Property Management in Richmond

Richmond is an affluent Thames-side borough in south-west London endowered with an abundance of beautiful green parks and several protected conservation areas. It could be described as London’s most attractive borough.

Richmond London


Richmond town was founded in the 16th century following King Henry VII’s building of Richmond Palace from which the town derives its name. Richmond remained mostly agricultural land until the 18th century when a number of large important houses were built. This made the area a very fashionable place to live and as a result many Georgian terraces were built, particularly around Richmond Green and Richmond Hill as well as shops in the town centre to serve the increasing population.

Since 1965 Richmond has formed part of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames which includes such areas and historic villages as Castelnau, Kew, Barnes, Mortlake, East Sheen, Richmond, Whitton, Twickenham, Petersham, Ham, Hanworth (in part), Teddington, Hampton Hill, Hampton, and Hampton Wick.
