This mesmerising mansion is the ultimate party pad
The Premier League season returns on Friday evening and this Palladian-style mansion in the heart of Surrey is the kind of place elite level footballers call home.
Set in an enormous 30 acres of beautiful parkland, this sprawling 10-bedroom property boasts several features that are indicative of the millionaire lifestyle – and they’re sure to bowl you over.
One such bonus of life at Sydenhurst is the private, indoor two-lane bowling alley, complete with disco lighting and many other X Factor extras associated with a professional ten pin bowling facility.
This masterpiece of a building is approached via a sweeping drive to reveal a colonnade entrance and an iconic Georgian style façade, while inside the rooms benefit from vast classical proportions.
If that isn’t enough to dazzle your guests, you can entertain friends and family by showing them around your very own tennis court, stables or either one of the indoor or outdoor swimming pools.
The indoor swimming pool is perfect for relaxing as it includes a spa bath, steam room and treatment room – the ideal haven for loosening up after a long week at work.
Elsewhere, annexed to the house, are an array of superb leisure facilities. The double height party room features a limestone fireplace and a dazzling metal-alloy ceiling as well as a gallery above.
On one side of the games room is a pool table, ping pong table and air hockey table – and even a luxurious home cinema complex. On the other is a snug and a sun room with doors leading out to the terrace.
But the surrounding landscape is simply breath-taking, too.
A terrace to the north of the house leads out to a sunken garden with an ornamental fountain, overlooked by a summer pavilion with a beautiful dining area and fire pit with a shaded seating area. From here an arbour leads to a private lake.
Rightmove’s property expert Miles Shipside said: “At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking this property was a genuine 18th century home, but because it’s been built with such love and attention, this very modern home has a very classical feel. The sandstone from Derbyshire’s Stoke Hall quarry is remarkable, while the surrounding manicured parkland is simply charming. This place is perfect for entertaining on a grand scale and is surely one of Rightmove’s real show-stopper country homes.”
