A stunning residence presented in the most exceptional order, stylishly decorated and furnished throughout. The whole being the subject of a total coordinated interior design programme. Situated in south facing gardens over half an acre in a tranquil location on the Wentworth Estate.

Only a stone’s throw from the local shops of Virginia Water with its excellent shops for day to day needs, restaurants and mainline railway station with a fast service to Waterloo in 42 minutes. For the weekly household shop there is an excellent Waitrose in Sunningdale and for more extensive shopping facilities, the towns of Windsor, Guildford and Kingston are all close at hand. Junction 13 of the M25 is just 3.5 miles away giving access to London, Heathrow and the motorway network. Other than the world renowned Wentworth Club, country clubs abound in the area such as Foxhills, Queenwood, Sunningdale and the Royal Berkshire. Delightful walks can be enjoyed around Virginia Water Lake which leads up to the Polo at Smiths Lawn, adjacent to Savill Gardens and Windsor Great Park beyond for riding. The area is also very well catered for by a wide choice of private schools, as well as two international schools, ACS in Egham and TASIS in Thorpe.

The Wentworth Estate extends to approximately 1,750 acres, it’s history dates back to the early 1920’s when the visionary developer, Tarrant purchased an agricultural estate around which he created his rural dream of substantial mansions set in beautiful mature gardens. Today there are three 18 hole golf courses including the Championship West Course and the Wentworth Club with swimming pools, restaurants, tennis courts, health and leisure facilities. The estate also has CCTV security cameras on all entrances which are linked to the local Police and Knight Security.

Built to exacting standards and beautifully appointed throughout, the house has benefitted from a fully coordinated interior design programme implemented by Alexander James Interiors, one of Europe’s leading interior design companies providing elegance both for family living and grand entertaining. From the impressive double height galleried entrance hall, access can be gained to the main receptions and study as well as the particularly impressive split level kitchen/breakfast room where steps lead down into the magnificent oval family room with very high ceilings and impressive real flame gas fire. The drawing room features a bespoke custom built cast iron open firegrate with glass enclosed basket and a double set of full height glazed doors opening onto the terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room is a large servery/kitchen ideal for food preparation when entertaining large gatherings, a utility room, separate cloakroom and access into the integral triple garage. Above the garage is a staff annexe/studio which comprises kitchenette and sitting bedroom with separate storage and en-suite bathroom. On the first floor, the beautifully coordinated master suite exudes opulence and benefits from its own large balcony overlooking the grounds, separate dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom. There are three further guest suites, two of which also enjoy their own private balconies. On the second floor, the cinema room boasts a fully integrated system with drop down screen as well as a bar area and a further large room ideal as a fifth bedroom or music/games room both of which are served by a stylish shower room. The communications room located on this floor houses the state of the art integrated systems for the whole house. The no expense spared approach continues outside from the wrought iron electric gates and video entry system leading onto a fully lit driveway giving plentiful parking all screened by well laid out landscaping. To the rear of the property extensive terracing runs the full width of the house with an oval terrace off the family room with a low retaining wall allowing for al fresco entertaining/dining. All the terracing leads out onto the beautifully manicured lawns which have a southerly aspect and are very well screened on all sides by mature hedging and trees. From one end of the terrace is a pleasant walk leading to the detached self contained suite with its own kitchen and bathroom which would also be ideal as a self contained office/studio or could even be used as a banya. Additionally, there is a large hard landscaped area to the rear of the garaging and side of the house as well as a large astro turfed area with an extensive children’s play frame, all having multi coloured lighting.

The house is equipped with Smart Technology throughout all main rooms allowing control of functions such as heating, lighting, CCTV, Sky and Sonos sound systems. Another unique benefit of Shamwari is the installation of state of the art cinematic quality anti resonance ceilings providing a non-echoing environment for all rooms which contributes to calm and tranquil living.
