A Little Bit About Strawberry Hill
The nineteenth-century development is named after “Strawberry Hill”, the fanciful Gothic Revival villa designed by author Horace Walpole between 1749 and 1776. It began as a small 17th century house “little more than a cottage”, with only 5 acres of land and ended up as a “little Gothic castle” in 46 acres.
The original owner had named the house “Chopped Straw Hall”, but Walpole wanted it to be called something more distinctive and after finding an old lease that described his land as “Strawberry Hill Shot”, he adopted this name.
Walpole rebuilt the existing house in stages from 1749 to 1776 adding gothic features such as towers and battlements outside. To elaborate the decoration inside a “gloomth” was created to suit Walpole’s collection of antiquarian objects, contrasting with the “riant” (smiling) garden.
After a £9 million, two-year long restoration, Strawberry Hill House re-opened to the public in October 2010.
Education establishments include Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Primary School, Archdeacon Cambridge’s Church of England Primary School, St James’s Roman Catholic Primary School and Radnor House, Newland House School. Situated in TW2 the area benefits from not being directly under Heathrow’s flight path, therefore it truly is an oasis of quiet on the outskirts of London.
