See inside Richmond's Grand Designs home:built from seven garages with an indoor slide, Kew House is for sale for £3.8m

A spectacular house in Richmond, featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs, has been listed for sale.

An award-winning home converted from seven garages in south-west London's Kew Green Conservation area has been listed for sale for the first time.

Built in 2014, the double-gabled 4,000sq ft home was shortlisted for the RIBA House of the Year award in 2015 and has also featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs.

The striking house is partly set behind the remaining façade of a Victorian stable wall and has two living wings based around a central courtyard.

Renowned architect Stuart Piercy designed the house with steeply-pitched twin-peak roofs clad with rusting Corten steel and joined a dramatic glass central section. A staircase runs up inside the glass middle.

Set over three floors are four bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/diner and a snug room with a wooden slide that runs down to the astro-turfed basement and sunken courtyard.
