Hamilton House is Grade II Listed and is a classical Queen Anne town house. The house is divided into three beautiful apartments reputedly built by the Duke of Hamilton for his sons to attend the College pre-1750. The house has symmetrical red brick elevations and sash windows under a tiled roof. This apartment forms the ground floor and benefits from well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and some wonderful period features. From Canon Street the front door opens into an entrance hall, there is the most wonderful panelled drawing room with marble fireplace, fitted bookshelves and shuttered windows, off which is a dining room/library. This room has fitted bookshelves and cupboards, moulded cornicing, ceiling rose, oak floor with trapdoor to extensive cellars which lie under the entire apartment and French doors opening into the walled garden. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke oak units by Searle and Taylor, marble worksurfaces and integrated appliances.

On the south-western side is a charming walled garden which is paved and enclosed by brick walls and has well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders and climbers including wisteria and roses. Double gates lead into this area from Culver Road, providing secure parking for up to two vehicles.
