A grand home with 90-foot river frontage on the Oxbridge boat race route has gone on the market for £2.95million.

Suthrey House is in the London suburb of Mortlake, Richmond Upon Thames, and has the largest private river frontage in the area.

The Grade II Listed property was originally built in 1619 and was home to the world famous Mortlake Tapestry Works, whose masterpieces can be seen in palaces and museums around the world to this day.

Up for sale with Riverhomes is the entire ground floor and basement, which makes a four-bedroom apartment.

Mortlake is on the south bank of the River Thames on the Oxford and Cambridge boat race route, with Richmond Park and Kew Gardens both nearby.
