BLESSED by be­ing bounded by the Thames with an enor­mous Royal Park, a river prom­e­nade, Rich­mond also has a su­perb vista from Rich­mond Hill — a view pro­tected by law. An­caster Gate, right, is a pres­ti­gious new scheme of houses at the sum­mit that backs di­rectly on to the park’s 2,500 acres.

A listed Ge­or­gian man­sion has been split into three houses boast­ing el­e­gant, curved bay win­dows, while mews-style houses have been built in the gated grounds. Prices start at £4.45 mil­lion. Call Lon­don Square on 0333 666 4141.

Across the road is The Star and Garter, for­merly a con­va­les­cent home for First World War sol­diers, now split into 86 fine apart­ments over­look­ing ter­raced gar­dens and Peter­sham Mead­ows. A mar­ble hall with grand stair­case is the en­trance lobby, while the re­stored King’s Room is a spa. Prices from £2.5 mil­lion. Call 0333 666 0102.
