Rush Grove House is a stunning mansion set in the heart of Woolwich, in the Royal borough of Greenwich. This hugely impressive and beautiful building has been extensively and meticulously restored and refurbished to create two separate properties. With picturesque views looking over the grounds and lake, this is a rare opportunity to purchase something totally unique.
Originally built for John Cook in 1816–17, the property was originally called Regent Cottage.
The house was enlarged in 1839 and in 1855 the Admiralty acquired Rush Grove House to replace Bowater Cottage as a residence for the colonel commandant of the Marine Barracks.
Rush Grove House was chosen to play the West End gallery of J. M. W. Turner in director Mike Leigh’s 2014 biopic of the famous British artist, which starred Timothy Spall – and the property was also a location for the smash-hit 2013 TV detective drama The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher.
