|Welcome to the Mervyn Smith website.
Mervyn Smith is an independent estate agency which has been successfully selling and letting properties since 1975. Our main area is the beautiful corridor between Richmond to the north and Kingston to the South delineated on one side by the River Thames to the west and on the other by Richmond Park to the east. Between these natural boundaries lie the areas of Petersham, Ham and North Kingston. The distinctions between these areas are not rigidly defined and have changed considerably over the years, as you can read in our short local histories on this website. There are naturally then considerable overlaps on our maps of the three areas.
There are a wide variety of styles and ages of properties to choose from in North Kingston, Ham and Petersham although even the quickest glance at a local map will immediately make it obvious that the proportion of housing development in our locality is very low compared to the large swathes of open green spaces which surround it. In a world where people now recoil more from over development, inner city life and traffic and aircraft noise, it’s this factor which gives our area its special character and has attracted more and more new buyers and tenants in recent years into this relatively unspoiled and villagey enclave. When you combine this with some particularly sought after schools, its not surprising that the level of interest in properties in Ham, Petersham and North Kingston has grown appreciably in recent years.
Mervyn Smith & Co. have been part of the fabric of local life for over 30 years. Proprietor Mervyn Smith and manager Stan Shaw have both been members of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) for many years and the firm are voluntary members of the Ombudsman Scheme for Estate Agents, so we like to think you can approach us with a sense of confidence and trust. We are truly independent and not a front or a franchise for any larger organisation lurking behind the scenes. We are not part-owned, or affiliated to, any bank, building society, insurance company or any other institution so we have no vested interests in trying to cross-sell our customers any other products. We have also been longstanding members of the Association of Richmond Independent Estate Agents (ARIEA), which comprises other like-minded independent agencies in the surrounding districts and provides an opportunity to promote our properties in other offices across the wider area if appropriate.
Please use this website as a resource not just for properties for sale and let in Ham, Petersham and North Kingston but also as a general taster to the area. Our gallery provides a collection of the many points of local interest. We’ve also included some pages on the history of the locality, and our maps mark out all the local schools, churches, doctors, dentists and other facilities in Ham, Petersham and North Kingston. And last but not least - we’ve also got some properties to buy or rent! Whether it’s a cottage to let near Ham Common, a house for sale near Richmond Golf Club or a flat for sale near the river in Kingston, we hope you can find what you’re looking for through Mervyn Smith.
