Marking the final opportunity to buy a conversion apartment at Grade II*-listed King Edward VII Estate in West Sussex, City & Country has released The Heritage Collection.
Comprising an exclusive range of just six new two-bedroom apartments, these homes have been crafted within the north-west wing of the historic sanatorium and can be ideal for either full-time country living or for use as a weekend retreat.
Internally, the apartments have been designed to capitalise on natural light, with feature windows that maximise beautiful views of the courtyard and wider estate gardens. A palette of muted tones and natural materials have helped to create a sense of understated style and luxury.
A high-quality specification individually designed luxury kitchens inclusive of integrated stainless-steel Siemens appliances and stone worktops.
The Master bedrooms benefit from a luxurious en suite, with all bathrooms designed to be modern and understated featuring soft colours and quality sanitaryware from Vitra. A further double bedroom and luxurious bathroom complete the homes.
The collection also includes several properties which feature unique original spaces, ideal for use as a home office or study. These spaces, when combined with fibre optic broadband (which provides residents with access to up to 300Mb and a high-speed and reliable internet connection), are ideal for those working from home.

Officially opened by His Majesty King Edward VII in 1906, the Estate sits in the heart of the South Downs National Parka nd remains an outstanding example of Edwardian architecture and design. Its buildings offer a wealth of features that celebrate layout, design and decoration.
More than 110 years later, award-winning heritage developer City & Country has restored and converted the Estate, originally designed by Arts & Crafts architects Charles Holden and Percy Adams, into a wide range of high-quality new apartments. It has won numerous WhatHouse? Awards since its launch.

Many homes feature private balconies, terraces or gardens, whilst residents also have access to the Estate’s 165-acres of private grounds and woodland, which includes terraces, pathways, hedgerows and herbaceous shrubs with a pattern of lawns and meadow, all attracting a variety of wildlife.
