City & Country’s reputation encouraged investor Christopher Lynch to buy a property at King Edward VII Estate, a collection of restored and converted listed buildings near Midhurst, West Sussex.
The estate includes a majestic tuberculosis sanatorium and a striking chapel, both Grade II* Listed. Christopher was impressed by the caliber of City & Country’s work and their successful track record of significant historic building conversions. He explains:
“Having looked at City & Country’s previous developments we gained confidence that they had a good position in the market and we were very happy with the location of King Edward VII Estate.
Situated in a national park and surrounded by fields and nature, it’s perfect for dog walking. Our apartment faces across the South Downs and the view from our balcony is fantastic - just rolling hills and fields”.
Residents have exclusive access to communal areas within the sanatorium, including the original dining hall and reading room, and can enjoy nationally significant restored landscaped gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll. Other benefits include a concierge service and a residents' gym with resistance equipment. A tennis court, swimming pool and spa pool will be available in due course, subject to the stage of development.
“They’ve given real thought in providing excellent communal areas and facilities that cater for all kinds of residents” says Christopher. “There is an abundant offering of nice villages and good pubs to visit nearby. It’s very picturesque here and it will be like a little town.”
