Sandylands Park is probably the finest opportunity to create an architecturally pure classical country house in arguably the most prestigious location outside London.

Location

Situated near the characteristic village of Englefield Green on Wick Lane - a small country lane which borders the eastern side of Windsor Great Park. Extending to over 5,000 acres Windsor Great Park is the former hunting grounds of the Kings and Queens of England stretching all the way to Windsor Castle. Nowadays Windsor Great Park offers open parkland for horse riding, long walks, boating on Virginia Water lake and the impressive Savill Gardens which were created by Sir Eric Savill in the 1930s.

Sandylands Park is located immediately off Wick Lane - the most expensive road outside central London. Consistently rated by the world's royal families and business elite, as the favoured address to own a country estate due to its close proximity to central London - just 22 miles away and Heathrow airport - just 9 miles away.

The Wentworth golf club is just a mile and a half away. Virginia Water, Sunningdale and Ascot offer local shopping amenities,
whilst schools such as Eton College, ACS Egham, St George's Ascot and Bishopsgate are all within easy reach.

Guards Polo Club is within walking distance at Smith's Lawn in Windsor Great Park and polo is also available at Royal County
of Berkshire Polo Club at Winkfield. The world's most famous race meeting - Royal Ascot is just 5 miles away. Restaurants and hotels in the area are exceptional with the likes of Dorchester Collection at Coworth Park and the Michelin starred Fat Duck and The Waterside Inn at Bray, The Latymer at Bagshot and Drakes at Ripley.

Description

Sandylands Park will have a sweeping in- out drive and will be entered from impressive entrance gates. Upon arrival it will be impossible not to be impressed by the purity of the architecture and the façade of the house. When entering the house through the central entrance portico with a segmental pediment supported by Ionic columns and engaged pilasters, you will gain a sense of arrival and of home coming. The entrance hall has two ante rooms off it with 2 guest WCs and coat cupboard. Walking through to the inner double height staircase hall, one will look up to admire the spectacular domed glass roof lantern which will flood the staircase hall with light. A large set of double doors will lead you into the south west facing drawing room which will enjoy views across the formal gardens. The drawing room is linked to the study via a double set of doors, which itself also has direct access off the entrance hall - perfect for visiting business guests. The family room which has been split into interconnecting areas (although, if required these could be separated) is planned to encompass a sitting area, a dining area and a family kitchen of impeccable design and quality. The utility kitchen is located on the lower ground floor and services the family kitchen with a dumb waiter which is positioned in the servery â€" conveniently located between the family kitchen and formal dining room. Ceiling heights will surpass 3.4 meters throughout the ground floor. The grand stair hall, with its sweeping staircase and domed glass roof, will provide access to the first floor accommodation. Walking into the master bedroom you will immediately be drawn to the nine windows which span the suite and enjoy south westerly views over the gardens and down towards the lake and onwards over the tree tops of Windsor Great Park.

The master bedroom sits at the centre of the suite and has a double dressing room for Her and large bathroom and a double dressing room and large bathroom for Him.

Both changing rooms have dual access from the swimming pool hall and from the corridor off the lobby. In addition there is a large gym.
