Richmond Place, now known as Asgill House, is a Grade I listed 18th-century riverside Palladian villa on Old Palace Lane in Richmond, London, (historically in Surrey). The house is on the former site of the river frontage and later the brewhouse for the medieval and Tudor Richmond Palace. It is 8 miles (13 km) from Charing Cross and was built as a summer and weekend parkland villa beside the River Thames for Sir Charles Asgill in 1757–58 by Sir Robert Taylor and was described as a 'villa of importance' beside the Thames. It was returned to its original appearance in a restoration of 1969–70 and is now leased from the Crown Estate as a private residence.
