City & Country sets new record at the WhatHouse? Awards 2023
City & Country has released one of the most impressive new homes at Sundridge Mansion in Bromley.
Named The Hanover, this stunning light-filled apartment is set across more than 1,300sqft and occupies a prominent position within the iconic Grade I Listed Mansion.
The two-bedroom home includes a spacious living room with original full-height sash windows, offering views through of the mansion’s original colonnades and across the landscaped entrance courtyard garden.
Award-winning heritage developer City & Country has crafted this unique home within the original Sundridge Mansion, an outstanding property designed by acclaimed architect John Nash, with the surrounding gardens designed by renowned landscape designer Humphry Repton.
Internally, The Hanover boasts a sumptuous specification. The open-plan kitchen/dining room is fitted with a handmade shaker-style Ladbury kitchen, appointed with integrated Siemens appliances and stone worktops. The master bedroom is particularly generous and has a dressing area and luxurious en suite with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, brassware from Crosswater and beautiful porcelain tiling. The home offers a generous amount of storage, including hidden underfloor storage accessed via steps under a concealed door in the floor of the utility room – a quirky feature which makes the most of the available space in this historic building.
The new homes at Sundridge Mansion benefit from a tranquil, parkland setting with views over Sundridge Park Golf Course. The mansion is accessed via a leafy, wooded drive, creating a peaceful and private living environment.
Suzanne Aplin, Sales & Marketing Director at City & Country, comments: “The Hanover is a stunning home that offers some of the most gorgeous westerly views at Sundridge Mansion. It offers modern amenities such as underfloor heating and lift access, while maintaining the heritage this breath-taking building possesses through meticulously restoring its features, such as the beautiful ceiling plasterwork and paintings.”
The Sundridge Estate dates back to 1200, with the mansion recognised as a nationally significant heritage asset which owes its existence today to Edward George Lind, who in 1792 set about greatly improving the estate.
City & Country has painstakingly restored and converted the building into a small collection of spectacular period properties. As part of the conversion, an abundance of original features have been retained and enhanced, including unique alcoves with original decorative plasterwork, wall and ceiling cornicing, window shutters and oak fireplaces.
