Sunninghill is a peaceful village which sits on the edge of Berkshire, close to Surrey and nudging the boundary of better-known Ascot.
These villages are held in high esteem and are known to attract the rich, the famous and even a smattering of royalty.
Schooling is of a particularly good standard and is one of the reasons why these villages are so attractive to families. Parents have been known to move house to get their children into Charters School in Sunninghill, one of the UK’s top performing state schools.
The area sees many expats living here in a truly cross cultural community. Many are driven to the area by the choice of two leading international schools – TASIS in Thorpe and the ACS International Schools in Egham and Cobham are highly appealing to families looking to ensure that their children maintain an international education. Trains from adjoining Sunningdale take under an hour into Waterloo, whilst Heathrow airport is just 15 miles away, making this an excellent location for business travel.
Julian de la Poer Beresford, Regional Director for Hamptons in Sunninghill, comments on the country mansions that are coming from Millgate:
“Hamptons International is delighted to be working again with Millgate in the sale of Holland Place in Sunninghill, Berkshire. Millgate’s mission is to be “the best in British house building” and the quality of their work speaks volumes. Hamptons International has sold several developments for Millgate in the past and they are certainly building a positive reputation from our clients to this effect.
“Holland Place, a development of only four bespoke houses, will provide an opportunity for discerning buyers to acquire a well-appointed individual home, set in a semi-rural location, with garden sizes to match the generous accommodation.
Ascot “Holland Place is situated between the prominent towns of Sunningdale and Ascot, internationally recognised for their famous golf course and racecourse. It is perfectly located for motorway access to London and to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
“With house prices in London now 10% above their pre-recession peak, but the average price in England and Wales still 10% below, the country house market is very good value indeed. Recent statistics seem to be recognising this. Our figures show that new buyers looking in the South East are up by 35% on last year, yet the number of new sellers is only up by 17%. As a result, Hamptons have seen an increase in overall sales of 55% on last year and over the last three months, more sales than any three month period since 2007. However, there is still ground to be made – prices remain 6% below their peak, but with an increase in enquiries from London buyers in the prime sector, now is a good time to be looking at Holland Place and a move to the country.”
Jonathan Cranley , Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, who made the Hamptons International appointment, commented:
Holland Place “We have worked with Hamptons International on several projects previously and we are confident of their ability to attract local, London and international buyers to view our new homes. The largest property in the portfolio of four that we are building will fetch in the region of £4.75 million and it is likely that this country mansion will sell to a foreign investor.”
This fabulously indulgent project in Sunningdale is due to launch in November 2013. For further information please contact Millgate on 01189 343344 or visit www.millgatehomes.co.uk.
