City & Country sets new record at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023
Overlooking Two 18-Hole Golf Courses and housed in a beautifully restored 18th Century Grade I-Listed building, UK heritage developers City & Country has breathed new life into The Mansion at Sundridge Park, which offers 22 Luxury Apartments with the chance to fulfil every golf lover’s dream of a home by the links.
The Mansion at Sundridge Park, a beautiful Grade I listed mansion house situated in Bromley, south- east London, which also happens to overlook not one, but two superb 18-hole golf courses.
The Mansion was originally designed by the eminent architect John Nash in 1797, with its surrounding estate and gardens planned by the acclaimed landscape designer Humphry Repton. Over 220 years later, The Mansion and its surrounding landscape have been transformed into an exclusive collection of 22 luxury restored apartments that offer the chance to truly live the dream.
While the majority have, not surprisingly, been snapped up by people eager to escape the centre of London, yet remain within touching distance of the capital’s business and cultural attractions, there are just a handful of properties available for purchase, with prices starting from £900,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.
Each of these grand dwellings has been meticulously designed to optimise natural light and make the most of the period features which have been expertly restored. Owners will benefit from the exclusive and peaceful surrounding oasis, as The Mansion is located within a green setting of almost 300 acres, including a highly-rated Sundridge Park Golf Club, which boasts two spectacular 18-hole courses and is the ultimate address for keen golfers looking to be just minutes from the clubhouse.
All residents at The Mansion benefit from a free annual social club membership at Sundridge Park GC, while those looking for full seven-day golf membership can skip the waiting list. Just imagine being able to drive your very own golf buggy directly from the doors of The Mansion to the Course, and being able to be on the first tee just minutes after leaving your home!
Back at The Mansion, each apartment is bespoke, refined and graceful, with the design of the building ensuring that no two properties are alike. The interior specifications have been specially selected to complement each apartment, with luxury additions and many beautiful original features, including restored shutters and windows, ornate plasterwork and grand fireplaces. The result is a selection of exquisite individual properties that provide for contemporary living whilst respecting the unique heritage of The Mansion.
Bespoke shaker-style kitchens, carefully designed to suit the unique layout of each property, are fitted with stone worktops and Siemens appliances, while the bathrooms benefit from luxurious freestanding roll-top baths and double rainforest showers, double sinks from Villeroy & Boch and brassware from Hansgrohe and Crosswater, and elegant porcelain tiling throughout.
Perfectly designed for modern living and working from home, every apartment is also fitted with hyperoptic broadband, which provides residents with the flexibility of choosing a broadband package to meet their requirements.
Each of the remaining homes also feature private outside spaces- from large terraces to incredible circular balconies with panoramic views, while there is also a collection of fantastic facilities and communal areas which have been beautifully designed to complement the history of the building.
George Clarke, presenter of Channel 4’s property programmes Restoration Man and Amazing Spaces was hugely impressed when he recently visited The Mansion. He said:
“The Mansion at Sundridge Park is without question one of the finest restoration projects of a John Nash building that I’ve ever seen. It’s absolutely stunning, with no detail that hasn’t been sympathetically restored and enhanced. All the apartments have been individually restored in keeping with the constraints of their Grade I listing, but at the same time they’ve all been fitted with the very latest in technology and modern conveniences- so you’ve got 21st century living in an 18th century building. I honestly couldn’t imagine a better place to live”
