The house was originally constructed in the Middle Ages. The country house was initially listed as Hampton House prior to its acquisition by David Garrick in 1754. Numerous alterations were made to it during Garrick's tenure by Robert Adam, including the portico, the building of an orangery and the construction of a tunnel under the road to connect with his riverside lawn. A wing was added to the west side of the house in 1864.

During the early part of the 20th century the house was the family home of Sir (James) Clifton Robinson (1848–1910), Managing Director and Chief Engineer of London United Tramways, and a single private tram track leading into the grounds was constructed. The house was converted into flats in 1922 and redeveloped again in 1969.
