Boasting seven bedrooms, all of the luxury outdoor amenities including a swimming pool, tennis court, BBQ and bar, 2.25 acres of manicured grounds, and a famous former resident, Charters on St George’s Hill has it all.
Enjoying one of the larger plots on St George’s Hill, with grounds extending to 2.25 acres, and some of the finest views over St George’s Hill golf course, you wouldn’t be short of opportunities to entertain outdoors at Charters. The private tennis court, swimming pool, BBQ area and bar are sure to keep guests entertained for hours against the backdrop of fear reaching views across the fairways.
A hint to a former resident sits above the outdoor bar, with neon signs celebrating some of the greatest ever musicians, including The Beatles, Elvis and Rolling Stones. An apt indication to a former owner. Charters boasts none other than Sir Cliff Richard as a previous resident. Perhaps it was the singer’s own visions that led to the property being wired for sound and boasting wonderful land, evergreen trees and a swimming pool that is ocean deep.
Built in 1928, the property is a fine example of a Tarrant home. A grand residence that is immediately impressive on approach, with distinct east and west wings and an imposing pillared entrance. Seven bedrooms, five receptions and six bathrooms are spread across three floors and almost 10,000 sq ft of accommodation (9,803 sq ft).
This wonderful home has generous and adaptable accommodation suited to family living or elaborate entertaining. Five reception rooms, an orangery, a large kitchen/breakfast/family room and cloakroom occupy the ground floor. Providing even further versatility to entertain for those larger celebrations, a large level terrace and lawn off the main orangery and drawing room is suitable for marquees.
The master bedroom is an impressive suite complete with two separate walk-in dressing rooms, large en-suite bathroom with bath, shower and double vanity sinks and all the while enjoying exceptional north easterly views across the grounds and gold course in the distance. There are four further bedroom suites and a small kitchenette on the first floor with the second floor having a further bedroom suite, studio and a media room all allowing flexibility depending on one’s needs.
For the car enthusiasts, there is extensive garaging for a car collection. Whilst part of the garage has been converted into an annexe, there is still room for three cars and could easily be converted to accommodate five or more. The driveway, which widens on approach to span the majority of the width of the property, has plenty of room for more vehicles and guest parking.
Speaking of Charters, Andrew Grant, partner of Curchods Prime and St George’s Hill specialist, commented;
“Charters is one of my favourite homes on the whole estate. Whilst Charters is undoubtedly an elegant home, it’s also perfect for a growing family. It boasts a fantastic mix of formal and informal reception rooms. The outdoor entertaining area is quite superb, with swimming pool, tennis court, BBQ area, bar and of course St George’s Hill golf course is right behind.”
