A spacious 16th century mansion, remodelled by renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, goes on the market for £8 million. Working closely with celebrated horticulturalist Gertrude Jekyll, they have created a stunning masterpiece of comfort, seclusion and serenity.
Warren Mere – a luxurious 16th century mansion located in Surrey, UK – is going on the market for the price of £8 million. The lavish property boasts eight bedrooms, three private lakes, a paddock, a stable block, a pool, a tennis court and a guest cottage with four bedrooms.
Remodelled in 1897 by Sir Edwin Lutyens – the architect best-known for designing the Cenotaph in Whitehall as well as the city of New Dehli in India and several landmarks in London – this property is an exquisite blend of rustic ambiance with a modern feel and state-of-the-art appliances.
The main house benefits from 4 reception rooms, including a family room, an orangery, a dining room and a formal sitting room. There are 8 bedrooms as well as a sauna, and extensive outbuildings complete with a guest cottage with four bedrooms, which it could be used for staff quarters.
The interiors are the work of famous Italian designer Enrica Stabile, with the style being described as a striking combination of classical and minimalist. All rooms are spacious with large French windows opening to the view of the private lakes and large yard. Natural sunlight and clever use of space accentuates the ambiance, which is light and airy.
A long driveway leads to electronically-operated iron gates before ending in a wide vehicular turning area in front of the main house. Together with the guest cottage the property sits handsomely on well-kept grounds and makes a perfect place for entertaining with the added benefit of extensive guest and staff accommodation.
The estate is marketed by agents Hamptons International, who say the asking price of the property is available ‘on application’.
