Leading heritage restoration developer, City & Country, is delighted to launch ‘The West Wing’, its second phase of luxury homes at Bentley Priory, Stanmore. The collection of seven elegant and spacious apartments are situated in a prime location, connected to the Bentley Priory Mansion House, offering far reaching views of the spectacular London skyline and set in over 50 acres of landscaped grounds.
Potential purchasers are invited to visit during the launch weekend on 20th and 21st July, where they can view the three bedroom new show apartment, which has been beautifully furnished by the in-house interior design team.
Helen Moore, Managing Director of City & Country commented: “We are delighted to launch The West Wing apartments at Bentley Priory. The new phase of homes signifies the progress we have made since we began the restoration and conversion this wonderful collection of listed buildings and we are on schedule to launch our final collection of homes later in the year. Bentley Priory is such a beautiful and historically significant building, our residents love the history combined with new interiors, this really is a rare and unique chance to own a home in a building that played such a vital role during the Battle of Britain and yet today provides a tranquil and secure base for those looking for something truly special.”
The West Wing was constructed in 1950 as officers’ accommodation and replaced a range of single storey offices built in 1939 when the Mansion’s conservatory was demolished. The building plays an important role in the setting of the Mansion and is ideal for those looking for light, open plan spaces. The exterior of the building has been dramatically yet sensitively renovated with beautiful new timber sash windows, French doors and Juliet balconies and has been rendered and lime washed to perfectly compliment the Mansion House.
The properties are ideal for downsizers or second home owners looking for a low maintenance home without having to compromise on quality, room sizes or a wonderful landscaped setting. A security and concierge service is available to ensure that residents feel safe, secure and comfortable whether at home or abroad.
The former RAF Bentley Priory was originally built in 1766 and served as the headquarters of fighter command for the Battle of Britain.

Distinguished visitors include Sir Walter Scott, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Winston Churchill.
