Looking to upgrade your luxury home to your dream residence in 2021? If you’re considering moving outside of your current area for a better quality of life, then it can be difficult to know where to start – but leaving behind the stresses and strains of the big city in search of somewhere you can enjoy navigating your days at a slower pace could make all the difference to your wellbeing.
Being closer to nature has long been shown to offer up a plethora of benefits in this department, and the leafy yet sophisticated village of Sunninghill, in Berkshire, has been attracting attention from affluent buyers and investors for all the right reasons.
A quiet village with an exclusive feel, it is home to the lavish Charters Estate – which attracts a high calibre of residents and property investors alike who value the utmost in discretion and privacy. International buyers have also been known to favour it thanks to its proximity to a number of highly regarded schools – including The Sunningdale School, which has been successfully feeding pupils to Eton and Harrow for some years.
With the prestigious Ascot Racecourse also located just a stone’s throw away, and Sunningdale Golf Club, Wentworth Golf Club, Guards Polo Club all within a three mile radius, there is plenty to appeal to the active type, with sporting activities and events punctuating the local calendar year round. And foodies will delight in exploring the local culinary scene, which includes fine dining at the Coworth Park Hotel, Pazzia and Bluebells. Heston Blumenthal’s iconic restaurant, The Fat Duck, is also close by, in the picturesque village of Bray, with The Crown and The Hind’s Head completing a Michelin starred line-up.
Add to that a selection of lakes, parks, castles – and of course, excellent shopping – and there’s a lot to love about Sunninghill.
Presented by Kai Carter Estates – a luxury boutique estate agency specialising in the luxury property sector – the Charters Estate itself is something truly special to behold. Nestled in a discrete location between Sunningdale and Sunninghill, it’s set in 24 acres of impeccably manicured grounds and gardens that are beautifully in bloom at this time of year, with an impressive serenity about it that is truly infectious.
It’s often said that your home should be your haven, and it certainly seems to be the case for those lucky enough to live here. Peace of mind is guaranteed on this high-security state that features a number of cameras around the perimeter and a 24-hour on-site security team.
It’s within easy commuting distance of London, so if travelling to and from the capital for business meetings and events is going to be part of your life, then you’ll be able to do so stress free. Heathrow Airport is also close by, which makes for easy jet-setting to and from home, and with access to the M25, M3 and M4 motorways in the vicinity, suffice it say that Charters is exceedingly well connected.
From the moment you set foot onto the Charters Estate, it’s difficult not to fall head over heels in love with this beautiful setting, and the impressive level of privacy and security that comes with it is reassuring, meaning residents can feel free to relax here, no stress necessary.
Private leisure facilities are available to all residents – including a 25-metre heated swimming pool, sauna and steam room, fitness centre, tennis court, and a spa and therapy treatment room, as well as a billiards room and garden pavilion which comes complete with its own barbecue and pizza oven.
With even a private concierge at your disposal, the Charters Estate certainly seems to tick all the right boxes so far. And inside the luxury residences, things get even better.
Sprawling 3,214 square feet over two floors, Apartment 16 is the epitome of modern grandeur. A penthouse property bathed in plentiful natural light and enjoying sweeping views over the estate’s grounds and gardens, the entrance is flanked with opulent walnut woodwork, giving way to an expansive Carrera marble floored hallway that can’t help but ooze sophistication.
The first floor comprises two spacious bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom and ensuite shower room respectively, alongside a utility room and W.C, while across the hall residents can enjoy cooking in the stylish Bulthaup kitchen, with a range of high-quality, fully integrated appliances to make life that little bit easier.
It’s upstairs, though, that you’ll find the real show stopper; a spectacular sunroom that extends all the way along one side of the property, and where wall-to-wall glass doors make way for a fully equipped bar and kitchen, and a luxurious hot tub. Here, it’s all about enjoying life, and if you’re the kind of person who likes to kick back, relax and unwind after a busy week, then here, you can do so in the utmost privacy. The sunroom is also the perfect space for entertaining and throwing champagne soirees and cocktail evenings, and with lift access from the first floor, it’s a five-star set-up that is certain to impress your guests.
The top floor also features a third bedroom-come-study, with its own private balcony and ensuite shower room, and with three private parking spaces allotted to the property, it suits overnight guests, too. Be aware, if you like to have visitors, that they can only be admitted by the concierge, and will be escorted directly to your property on arrival – another of the extensive security measures put in place to ensure that Charters’ residents always feel safe.
Fusing luxury and grandeur with comfort and functionality, Apartment 16 is an apartment with balance, and the architects of Charters have achieved equilibrium in every sense. And there’s no question that this property is going to be snapped up quickly – the only question is, by whom?
