Set on a private plot within the historic and posh Wentworth Estate in Surrey, Dawn Hill’s vast classical proportions rise up from the end of a sweeping driveway.
Inspired by London’s Corinthia Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, luxury developer Consero London designed and constructed this newly built, three-story mansion, which features a colonnade entrance and an iconic exterior façade hand carved from natural French limestone in Paris. Inside, the home has been engineered to combine stellar British craftsmanship with innovative technology.
“The property offers an international story of artisanal expertise from some of the world’s most talented craftsmen,” said Robert Osborn, the managing director at Consero London, the property’s developer.
“For example, French-polished oak doors frame the entrance of the master suite, which comprises an Italian marble bathroom and three balconies. Every door handle was hand-blown locally in Surrey to include silver,” he said. “The chandeliers were hand made in Portugal, while the joinery in the stunning bespoke kitchen was created by an English artisan, taking over 2,000 hours to complete.”
The 26,150-square-foot house has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms and sits on 3.03 acres of mature landscaped gardens.
According to Mr. Osborn, a wellness complex on the ground floor has a large heated swimming pool (inspired by the design of the Bulgari Hotel) along with a steam room, sauna, gym and sunken limestone terrace that opens out from the pool area into the rear gardens. This level also features an 18-seat home cinema with cutting-edge digital screen technology and surround sound as well as a temperature and humidity-controlled wine cellar, a gaming room and a bar.
The sporting set will appreciate that the Wentworth Estate is also home to the Wentworth Club and golf courses.
In addition, Mr. Osborn notes that the area is in the heart of equestrian excellence in the U.K., as some of the country’s finest racecourses, including Ascot, Windsor, Epsom and Sandown, are nearby. The property is only 45 minutes away from central London and it’s a 25-minute drive to Heathrow or a 15-minute drive to the Fairoaks private airfield.
