      History:
      Doughty House is a large house on Richmond Hill in Surrey, England, built in the 18th century, with later additions. It has fine views down over the Thames, and both the house and gallery are Grade II listed buildings.

      The house was named after Elizabeth Doughty, who lived there from about 1786, and built St Elizabeth of Portugal Church in The Vineyard, Richmond. It was the residence of the Cook baronets from when it was bought in 1849 by the first baronet until after World War II. A 125-foot-long-gallery (38 m) was added in 1885 for the very important family art collection. The house was damaged by bombing in the Second World War and the 4th baronet moved to Jersey with 30 paintings from the collection.

      In 2012 the house was on the market with an asking price of £15,000,000.

      Future:
      C18 house with C19 alterations made by the Cook family. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent have been granted to retain the main property as a single dwelling and to convert the gallery to ancillary accommodation, along with re-instating Doughty Cottage as the link between the house and gallery.


      The explore:
      So we spent basically all day in traffic jams to get there and back...
      The explore itself was surprisingly easy too; I must admit, that from what I have seen of it, I was expecting the place to be a little bigger than it was, but I guess thats the art of the wide angle lens!
      Anyway, great explore, would definitely revisit providing there are no traffic issues!

      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.

      A quickie, but a nice one...... Villa Margherita is an abandoned house in Italy. An ornate staircase curves around into the entrance hall. The house has been cleared of all content but the architecture of the staircase and hallway is lovely. That's about all I know!
