Ottershaw Park Mansion
This Grade II listed mansion was originally constructed in 1761, but over the years Ottershaw Park Mansion has seen many changes to its size, design and function – from a private house to a hospital and even an all-boys school, today is it home to 24 families in luxury apartments.
Forming one of Europe’s premier residential areas, this 1920’s estate covers 7 square kilometers of woodland, luxury homes (many of which belong to celebrities) and the world famous Wentworth Club – the first golf club to hold the Ryder Cup.
Excellent transport links add to the popularity of the area. Rail routes connect all parts of the Borough to London Waterloo, with frequent main line services running from nearby Woking and West Byfleet stations – with up to 15 trains per hour; the quickest taking just 24 minutes.
For those that prefer the car, Central London or the south coast are about 60 minutes by road. New Haw is equidistant from Junction 10 and Junction 11 of the M25 which are both about 4 miles away, providing easy access heading north, south, east or west, as well as to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports, approximately 20 and 35 minutes away respectively.
