About this property
Set in just under 43-acres of breath-taking parkland designed by Lancelot Capability’ Brown, Denham Place is beautifully refurbished and modernised Grade I Listed mansion with spectacular interiors in the style of a palace, located in Denham village where London meets Buckinghamshire. Notable former residents have included the Bonaparte Imperial family, American banker JP Morgan, politician and movie financier Lord Robert Vansittart and James Bond film franchise co-producer Harry Saltzman.
Following an extensive eight-year restoration project of world-class quality, the estate has been brought to market and provides the unparalleled opportunity to purchase the finest stately home within 30 minutes of Central London.
Built in 1688-1701, this exceptional residence has been fully restored and short of acquiring one of the Crown Estate Royal Palaces there is nothing of this grandeur or provenance so close to Central London.
The grand 28,525 sq. ft. manor house, built in classic William and Mary architectural style, provides a private palace with state room-style principal entertaining spaces. The estate has a Grade II Listed coach house, estate cottages, ancillary buildings and substantial garaging for vehicles (all totalling 11,199 sq. ft.).
The restoration was led by acclaimed designer and award-winning architect Alexander Kravetz working alongside English Heritage and The Georgian Group for historic accuracy. The estate now offers exceptional accommodation with the principal rooms benefitting from ceiling heights of over 16 feet, tall sash windows and ornate plasterwork throughout. The finest materials and artisans were used for the world-class transformation.
Restored and conserved by renowned Landscape Architect Lord Kenilworth, the estate offers a balance of landscaped gardens and Grade II listed parkland and woodland, bordering the 18-hole Buckinghamshire Golf Club championship course. The grounds include a formal sunken garden, walled garden, meadow, orchard, and lake.
There is planning consent to transform the coach house into a VIP health spa offering a state-of-the-art gym, changing rooms, sauna, steam room, lounges, three treatment rooms and two wet-treatment rooms complete with a 15-metre outdoor swimming pool (that can be enclosed with a glass conservatory).
