Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located within the heart of this exclusive private estate Long Wall is surrounded by 1.47 acres of mature gardens adjoining the golf club fairway offering privacy and seclusion. This one-off contemporary home was designed in 1962 by Leslie Gooday OBE for his own occupation and is recognised as his most successful work.

Location

St George's Hill is internationally renowned as one of the most sought-after private estates in England.

Access onto the private, gated estate is controlled during the day by the estate's security personnel and is restricted at all times. St George's Hill is set in some 900 acres and features a private championship standard golf course and a separate private tennis and squash club.

The tennis club is one of the foremost racquet sports clubs in England, with 30 grass and all-weather tennis courts, two indoor courts and four squash courts. The tennis club also has a 20 metre indoor swimming pool, a well-equipped gym, studio and treatment rooms and a restaurant and bar. There are also indoor crèche facilities so that families with young children are ensured peace of mind whilst playing or relaxing.

In addition to the on-site sporting facilities, there are many other challenging golf courses locally including Burhill, Wisley, Woking, Foxhills, Queenwood, Worplesdon and West Hill. Racing is available at Sandown Park, Ascot, Epsom and Windsor. Polo can be enjoyed at Guards Polo Club and The Royal Berkshire Polo Club.

St George's Hill offers an ideal location for families looking for security and privacy and there are several excellent English and International schools in the area including Reeds School, St George's College and The ACS International School at Cobham.

Description

Designed by Leslie Gooday OBE, one of the most prominent British architects of the post-war period, this stunning and quite unique property incorporates much of the quiet elegance of the modern style and in recognition is now listed Grade II.

The property is noted for the sensitive use of contrasting materials in its construction, including a copper roof, paved courtyards, birch wood, brick and cast concrete giving sweeping lines that complement and blend with the natural woodland setting.

Of particular note is the vaulted main reception room, overlooked by a mezzanine floor which is both grand and formal. All the rooms have large floor to ceiling windows making the rooms bright and affording views over the gardens and giving an 'inside out feel'.

The house is approached down a long sweeping tree lined drive leading to the parking area and garaging. In addition there is a detached double garage for further parking.

Of particular note is that this freehold property is being offered for sale with planning permission for the conversion of the main double garage to allow for a spacious bedroom suite with a linked basement under the driveway, giving the option for additional gym and leisure facilities. Listed planning consent has also been passed to modernise all bathrooms, the kitchen, window treatments, electrics and heating. More information can be viewed on Elmbridge Borough Council's website; planning numbers 2016/2013 and 2016/1735.

Long Wall gives a buyer the opportunity to own a British design classic in a peaceful and tranquil setting but still only 24 miles from Central London.

Square Footage: 2,660 sq ft
