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 was built as a summer and weekend country villa beside the River Thames for Sir Charles Asgill in 1757–58 by Sir Robert Taylor and is among the last villas of importance to be erected on banks of 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.
