Royal designer David Linley adds his secret touch to luxury Coombe Hill house

A seven-bedroom Coombe Hill estate house, with kitchen interiors designed by David Linley, is on sale for £8.5 million.

For townies with country living in mind, Kylemore House, in Kingston upon Thames, is a new seven-bedroom beauty 800 metres from Richmond Park and close to Coombe Wood Golf Club.

On the market with Savills for £8.5 million, it is on the hugely desirable Coombe Hill estate, home of tennis player-turned-broadcaster Annabel Croft


£8.5 million: Kylemore House is a seven-bedroom property, just 800 metres from Richmond Park

The neighbourhood has long attracted the rich and famous. Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood lived opposite the entrance to Coombe Park, and media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s TV executive daughter Elisabeth also lived locally. The house’s striking kitchen with hand-painted walnut units and secret drawers was designed by David Linley, pictured, son of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, and chairman of Christie’s UK — all good gossip for kitchen suppers with the well-heeled neighbours.
