Higher Grounds: New Homes Set in Impressive Estates

Recent surveys have discovered that in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, many people are now considering a move away from urban areas to a less densely populate place in suburbia or the countryside.

While there are hundreds of high-quality developments in such locations, there are a few that come with the bonus of being set on private estates that offer considerable open space and natural surroundings to enjoy, with the bonus of a touch of exclusivity to residents. And while some might require the buyer to have a significant budget, many have properties available at moderate prices within reach of mid-market house-hunters.

King Edward VII Estate, Midhurst, West Sussex

Sitting within the South Downs National Park, the 165-acre estate comprises meadows, woods, and the replanted historic Gertrude Jekyll garden within numerous walking routes to enjoy them all. There are restored Garde II and II* listed buildings converted into exceptional apartments and sympathetically designed new build houses. Residents can use a private gym, swimming pool and steam room, lounge, and concierge service. This development has won numerous awards in recent years. Apartments start at £280,000.
