Buckingham Gate stands in the former grounds of the Jacobean mansion, Tart Hall. In 1633 the Hall was purchased by Thomas Howard, the Earl of Arundel, for his wife, Lady Alethea, as a pleasant retreat from Arundel House, near the Strand.
By the mid-19th century, a newly laid road ‘Buckingham Gate’ first appeared on the ordnance survey map of 1869, at the same time as the Duchy of Cornwall office, accompanied by the legend ‘Site of Tart Hall.’
From the polished and panelled entrance doors, to the new, natural slate roof, the façade of Buckingham Gate has been completely renovated.
Previous extensions to the building have been removed and new features added: full height, south-facing windows; bi-folding doors with Juliette balconies; a series of terraces and outdoor amenity spaces; and a reworked, south-facing rear aspect to allow for more space and light.
Inside, the original Regency-style rooms have been meticulously restored: each cornice, ceiling rose and wall moulding has been made perfect once more, along with the staircases, French windows, shutters and doors.
The grand fireplaces of the formal rooms have either been restored or replaced with the utmost attention to detail and authenticity.
