Large stylish apartment set in stunning grounds.
The King Edward VII estate is a unique Grade II Listed development with a wealth of history. Founded in 1901 to care for those suffering from tuberculosis it was officially opened on the 13th June 1906 by His Majesty King Edward VII. The buildings were designed by the famed architect Charles Holden and the gardens by the acclaimed Gertrude Jekyll. In recent years the former sanatorium buildings and grounds have been redeveloped providing a number of apartments and houses together with a range of facilities including a gym, swimming pool, residents lounge, meeting rooms and guest accommodation for visitors. Throughout the stunning grounds are walks of almost 7 km meandering around the estate through mature oak woodlands and heathlands.

The bespoke fitted kitchen and generous sized study complete the ground floor accommodation.

There are few properties, let alone apartments that can boast a 33' drawing room with the grandeur of this one! This is a very special property with all the added benefits that the estate offers and it would make the most perfect lock-up-and-leave setup or permanent, luxury full-time home for that matter.James Machell
