Sandycombe Lodge in Twickenham is of unique significance, built by the great landscape painter J.M.W. Turner. Turner was his own architect, his designs evolving through many sketches in his notebooks. The house was intended for his own use as a rural retreat from the pressures of the bustling art world of the early nineteenth century.

The important artistic associations and an unusual architectural history combine to make this modest Regency villa a building of great local, national and international importance.
