Doughty House, Richmond Hill, UK
 

Built in the 18th century, Doughty House is a large house on Richmond Hill in Surrey, England. The house has amazing views over the Thames and central London can be seen in the distance. The house is named after Elizabeth Doughty, who lived there from about 1786.

A 125-foot-long gallery was added in 1885 for the very important family art collection. It housed a considerable collection of paintings including works by Titian and El Greco.

Both the house and gallery are Grade II listed, and planning permission for rennovation with some alterations has been granted. The house was put on the market in 2012 with a guide price of £15 million.

Our Visit
Spider Monkey and I were quite impressed with this house and the gallery was much more impressive than we were expecting. The wrought ironwork reminded us of a French château.
