Iconic Country Estate Near London.


St Ann’s Court is a unique and iconic modern country estate in Surrey, just 30 minutes West of Central London in the UK. The estate, which can trace its origins back to 18th Century, has been home to many celebrities, including aristocracy, rock stars and well-known entrepreneurs.

Set in 8-acres of award-winning and historical grounds and offering accommodation of just under 12,000 sq ft across 34 rooms, the estate comprises two substantial yet contrasting buildings called ‘The Round House’ and ‘The Coach House’ – just 50 feet apart across a serene courtyard.

The Round House (the white circular mansion) is a modernist masterpiece by renowned architect Sir Raymond McGrath who was a disciple of Le Corbusier. It is a famous English landmark, awarded a ‘building of great national importance’ status (Grade II*) by the Historic England organization.

Sought after by top photographers and directors it has been featured in countless books, films, TV series and magazines. It is frequently called ‘a place which keeps giving’ because of its legendary curves and light, and its perfect Lo P’an divisions in the Feng Shui tradition.

The second building (Tuscan red) was The Coach House for the original 18th Century mansion which was the home to Sir Charles Fox and later Lady Holland and in the 1920s to Sir William Berry (then owner of Financial Times and The Telegraph). In the 1980s, it was converted into a world-class music studio and an expansive home office by Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music where the group and many other top musicians recorded their hits.

The interiors of The Coach House are thoroughly contemporary with double-height ceilings and it doubles up as a large entertainment, party and work area. It also has a separate drive and gates for added privacy.

The estate was acquired in 1997 by the current owner, technology entrepreneur Osman Kent, and was totally refurbished in a project lasting over two years. The landmark project by award-winning architect Stephen Marshall, not only transformed both buildings inside and outside, but added 21st century comforts, including gigabit structured wiring and modern satellite, heating and security systems throughout.

The grounds of St Ann’s Court are a separate delight with a mixture of contemporary and traditional landscapes and features seven distinct gardens, woodland and five ponds. It is also well suited for equestrian pursuits with ample room for stable blocks and horse riding.

St Ann’s Court, sits atop St Ann’s Hill, which is a protected nature reserve surrounded by many lakes. It is close to picturesque towns and villages like Thorpe, Egham, Virginia Water, Chertsey, Windsor and Ascot and is only 10 minutes away from Heathrow Airport. There are great schools nearby, including TASIS (The American School in Surrey) and the area is rich in history and nature with great pubs and restaurants. Fairoaks Airport for private planes and the famous Wentworth golf club are only a short distance away.
