One Palace Green is a planned residential development in Kensington, London W8.

REDD is planning to restore the Grade II* listed mansion on Kensington Palace Gardens into a new luxury residential scheme which is targeting a completed value in excess of £100m.

New Homes

One Palace Green will provide a collection of new luxury residences with lateral living spaces, and access onto terraces and gardens. Amenities will include a 5-star concierge and property management service, managed by REDD‘s House Management team.


The new interiors will reinstate some of the building’s historic features, layered with a modern specification in order to create contemporary living spaces that pay respect to the William Morris heritage of the building. The residences will have a cutting-edge air filtration and air quality management system in order to provide safe and pure air that minimises outside vehicular pollution, viruses and pollen levels.


Accessed via double gates and a carriage driveway, One Palace Green has a grand brick and Portland stone façade, arranged over lower ground, ground and four upper floors, with generous ceiling heights, tall sash windows and large rooms on all floors, complete with a coach house, gardens and off street parking.


The project will utilise the latest technologies and building techniques to minimise its carbon footprint. It will also look to adopt on-site renewable energy sources.

Palace Green and Kensington Palace Gardens is a tree lined private road which provides one of the most secure locations in the capital, with security barriers and lodges at both ends of the road monitoring vehicular and pedestrian access.


One Palace Green was originally built in 1868-1870 as a 17,000 sq ft mansion for George Howard (1843-1911), the 9th Earl of Carlisle, designed in Queen Anne revival style by renowned architect Philip Webb, with interiors by William Morris of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and company.

In 1957 One Palace Green was converted into a collection of large lateral apartments by The Crown Estate.

The site at One Palace Green was originally occupied by a Crown Estate Grace-and-Favour Royal residence used by a cousin of HM Queen Victoria which was replaced by the current Philip Webb and William Morris mansion designed for the Howard family in 1868.
