A serene country estate for sale in picturesque Surrey, dating back to the 18th century but offering all the modern amenities. Hidden behind electric gates and manicured gardens, the luxury historic property can be purchased for £8.5 million, the equivalent of $9.5 million.
The estate occupies 3.5 hectares in the prestigious area of Elmbridge. Famous neighbors include Mick Jagger, Andy Murray, Kate Winslet and a number of professional footballers such as John Terry and Frank Lampard. Recently undergoing a detailed restoration, the approximately 430-square-foot, three-story brick home offers five bedrooms, four baths, an attached one-bedroom, one-bath cottage, natural pine floors, minimal furnishings and thoughtful details, including antique marble fireplaces.
The facades and walls inside the building are painted in a cotton-white light, which contrasts well with the green gardens and surrounding forest. Much attention was also paid to the lighting system, which includes designer chandeliers and lamps. The hallway features handcrafted oak cabinets and smoked oak doors imported from Holland. The garden also has a panoramic view from the breakfast nook.
French doors in the living and dining rooms open onto an irregular stone-paved terrace and a vine-covered pergola that runs along the rear of the house. Picturesque British lawns, sculpted topiary and gravel terraces surrounding the house give way to woodland paths. Inside the house itself there is a walled garden, and there is also a restored original workshop on the grounds.
It is unknown who exactly is selling the house.
