Old Deer Park, Twickenham Road, TW9

Monthly Rent Of £37,500Fees apply

A newly refurbished former Royal building located in Richmond's Old Deer Park, nine miles from Central London.

This historic Grade I listed private residence overlooks its own lake and was built for King George III as his Observatory in 1769 by the well-known architect of the day, Sir William Chambers. The property stands in seven acres of parkland and is reached by a private drive running through The Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Course.   

The King's Observatory has been converted to a prime residence and retains many of its original features, including listed display cabinets that previously housed the King's collection of scientific instruments. The property has been finished to uncompromisingly high standards, demonstrating outstanding craftsmanship. The house features state-of-the-art Audio-Visual automation and climate control throughout, including full air-conditioning on the lower ground and first floors. Extensive security systems are incorporated throughout the property and grounds.   

The property comprises three floors interconnected by lift. There is an additional and separate entrance to the Garden Foyer located on the lower ground floor. The accommodation includes reception room, drawing room, dining room, South facing library leading to stairs to an outside terrace, four double bedrooms with dressing rooms and en-suite marble bathrooms, family room, guest cloakroom, kitchen, with utility area and larder, staff toilets and various other storage areas. Views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from the roof terrace. The seven acres of grounds are planted for a future landscape of wild flowers and indigenous grasses. The property has its own lake complete with Portland stone boathouse designed to be in keeping with the Palladian style of the house. The lake is used by a wide range of wildfowl. The house has extensive 360 degree panoramic views across the surrounding golf course. There is extensive car parking with covered space for three cars. Four ha-has have been strategically placed to enhance the security of the property.   

Richmond Station, with its mainline and underground lines, is 0.7 miles away, whilst London Heathrow Airport is approximately 11 miles away. EPC exempt

Tenants Fees

Pre-Tenancy

PAYMENT OF INTENT
When you apply for a tenancy, you will be required to make a Payment of Intent which is usually equivalent to one weeks' rent. This Payment of Intent will be offset against the total of initial monies required before the commencement of tenancy. The payment formalises your intent to proceed with an application for a tenancy, subject to contract, though it is refundable should you decide not to proceed with the tenancy. However, if you decide not to proceed, then all of the pre-tenancy charges and fees listed below will be deducted plus an administration fee of £60.00 (including VAT). Should the Landlord withdraw for any reason other than inadequate references, then the Payment of Intent will be refunded in full. Should the reason be for inadequate references, then the Payment of Intent will be refunded less the referencing charges as detailed below and an administration fee of £60.00 (including VAT).

RENT
The normal method of payment is either calendar monthly or quarterly in advance, subject to negotiations. Please note that the rent is usually exclusive of telephone, gas, electricity, Council Tax and water rates, which are all the Tenant's responsibility. Please note that the initial payment for the first period of rent, the deposit and the charge for the Tenancy Agreement is payable before Check-In commences, and must be cleared funds in the form of a Bankers Draft or by direct payment to our account. We cannot accept personal cheques or cash for this initial payment.

SECURITY DEPOSIT
Equivalent to six weeks' rent.

TENANCY AGREEMENT (Tenant's share)
Tenancy Agreement fee applicable of £285.00 (including VAT). There may also be a Stamp Duty fee payable to the Inland Revenue - please see website www.gov.uk/stamp-duty-land-tax-rates.

ALTERATIONS TO AGREEMENT
Any alterations requested by the Tenant's solicitor to our standard Tenancy Agreement will incur a fee of £90.00 (including VAT) per hour.

REFERENCES
The Company uses a Credit Reference Agency to process references. You will be asked for details of current and previous addresses, employer, bank and personal references. There is a fee of £50.00 (including VAT) payable per Tenant for processing the application. A further fee of £50.00 (including VAT) may be payable if a guarantor is required.

PETS
Not permitted by most Landlords. When pets are allowed, the security deposit is increased to the equivalent of 2 months' rent.

CHECK-IN
We will follow the instructions of the Landlord in making arrangements for the inventory check-in. An Inventory check-in is conducted at the time of possession by an independent inventory clerk. The Landlord is responsible for the check-in charge. Possession is granted after such a check-in, which is conducted during office hours Monday - Saturday. The costs will vary depending on the size of the property. It is advised that the Tenant attend the check-in appointment.

During Tenancy

UTILITIES
All utilities except telephone and other telecoms must be transferred into the Tenant's name at the commencement of the term. If accounts have not been held during the last six months in the UK, it may be necessary to pay a deposit (approx. £100.00) to the Electricity Board and / or British Telecom or to pay monthly by Direct Debit.

AMENDEMENT FEES (Tenant's share)
Renewal Addendum, Memorandum of Agreement or Deed of Variation fee of £100.00 (including VAT).

BREAK CLAUSE - Should the Tenant negotiate the inclusion of a break clause in their Tenancy Agreement and should the Tenant exercise the break clause during the tenancy, a fee of £200.00 (inclusive of VAT) will be payable to Jackson-Stops. If the Tenant does not exercise the break clause and remains in the property for the duration of the agreed Term, no fee will be charged.

EARLY TERMINATION
Should a Tenant wish to terminate the tenancy before the end of the term and the Landlord agrees, the Tenant will be liable to pay the rent until the term expires, or the property is re-let, whichever is earlier. The Tenant will also be responsible for the repayment of the pro-rata commission paid in advance by the Landlord for the unexpired portion of the tenancy, unless the Tenant is exercising a break clause which is contained in the Tenancy Agreement.

CHANGE OF TENANT
Should an individual Tenant wish to vacate the property and replace themselves with an alternative Tenant, they will be obliged to obtain written consent from the Landlord. Upon receipt of this consent the Agent will draw up a new Tenancy Agreement to be signed by all parties. An administration fee of £420.00 inclusive of VAT will be charged for this service.

NON-PAYMENT OF RENT
An administration fee of £50.00 (including VAT) will be chargeable for each letter sent by us regarding late or non-payment of rent or administration charges. If any charges remain outstanding at the end of the tenancy, we will deduct the total amount from the security deposit.

REFERENCE REQUEST
The Tenant may request a reference at any time. The administration fee for the service is £50.00 (including VAT) and is payable when the reference is requested.

Post-Tenancy

PROFESSIONAL CLEAN
At the end of the tenancy, the Tenant will be responsible for paying for a professional clean.

CHECK-OUT
We will follow the instructions of the Landlord in making arrangements for the inventory check-out. Unless otherwise agreed, the Tenant will be liable for the cost of the check-out. The Tenant will be liable for the cost of any missed appointments/cancellation fees. The Tenant is aware that the cost of the check-out appointment is variable, depending on the size of the Property. It is advised that the Tenant attend the check-out appointment.
