Updown Court, Windleshan, Surrey, UK
Larger in area than both the royal residences of Hampton Court Palace or Buckingham Palace, this magnificent estate symbolises the grand and imposing presence of the Great Houses of England, yet employs state-of-the-art 21st Century technology to provide the ultimate living environment.
Standing in approximately 58 acres, Updown Court was conceived and planned as a spectacular mansion of unparalleled scale and luxury. The house extends to just under 4,500 sq m (50,000 sq ft) and has accommodation arranged over 4 floors. The house stands in a slightly elevated position with south facing views over the formal gardens and a lake which are framed by mature woodland to offer extensive privacy. Elsewhere in the grounds there is a security lodge adjacent to the magnificent entrance gates, two exceptional staff/guest houses and an estate office adjoining the garage complex. Beyond this is a stable block set close by wrought iron gates which allows for access to secluded bridleways. The house benefits from extensive wooded gardens and grounds within which are two swimming pools and an all weather sports surface. Updown Court has extensive security provision.
The property sits in over 11 acres of landscaped gardens and 46 acres of mature private woodland featuring broadleaf and evergreen trees. Carefully divided into different areas to appeal to all tastes, it includes formal gardens, a dramatic lake with 10 metre fountain, formal lawns and several ponds. Pathways lead through the gardens and run alongside an ornamental stream. Updown Court includes the main house, built on a palatial scale over four floors; a security lodge, two staff/guest houses, comprising nine bedroom/bathroom suites in total and a separate manager’s office. There is underground garaging for at least eight cars and a helipad for private landings.
