City & Country sets new record at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023
The last remaining south-facing penthouse at King Edward VII Estate – the majestic Grade II* listed former hospital near Midhurst – is now available. The unique two-bedroom conversion apartment includes a spectacular roof terrace, designed to create a tranquil and private space, boasting an incredible vista across the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park and the estate’s restored Gertrude Jekyll gardens. Ideal as a country bolthole, this home represents the last opportunity to own a new penthouse in this particularly special part of the breath-taking building.
Internally, the accommodation is spread over almost 1,200 sqft, with a bright open plan living area flooded with natural light through its multiple sky lights and windows. A high-quality specification in the handmade Ladbury kitchen includes an island unit with stainless steel Siemens appliances, stone worktops and traditional shaker-style units. The master bedroom benefits from a luxurious en suite bathroom. A further double bedroom offers additional space for a walk-in wardrobe or private office, and a luxurious family shower room completes the home, which is sold with two allocated parking spaces.
Built in 1901 and originally designed by Arts & Crafts architects Charles Holden and Percy Adams, King Edward VII Estate is an outstanding example of Edwardian architecture and design. The Estate’s buildings offer a wealth of architectural features that celebrate layout, design and decoration. More than 110 years later, award-winning heritage developer City & Country has converted and restored the Estate to its former glory, including large internal communal areas and grounds for residents to enjoy.
Residents also have access to a luxurious indoor swimming pool and steam room which have been created in a new building attached to the rare Grade II* listed chapel.
The Estate is nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park, ideally located just a few miles from both Midhurst and Haslemere. Both towns are home to a range of shops, cafes and restaurants, whilst miles of beautiful walking can be enjoyed in both the 165 acre estate itself and the surrounding countryside.
