<p>PENBURY GROVEPenn | Buckinghamshire</p> <p>Penbury GroveA once in a lifetime opportunity exists to build a great English country house and estate on this unique site in Penn, near Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. Grand Reception Hall Vaulted Hallway Drawing Room Library Dining Room Large Kitchen &amp; Family Room Morning Room Snooker Room Eight Bedroom Suites Large Indoor Swimming Pool Steam &amp; Sauna Room Gymnasium Gate Lodge Two Staff Apartments Stable Yard Garaging for Twelve Cars Tennis Court Walled Garden Magnificent Grounds &amp; Gardens of 25 Acres Staff Lodge Large Domestic Area with Commercial Kitchen Cinema Room</p> <p>This remarkable position deserves a remarkable house. It is astonishing to find such a secluded and significant Estate so close to London. We have been able to design a new house that makes best use of the landscape, creates up-to-date living accommodation while remaining within the tradition of the English country house. We hope it will set a new standard for the modern classical house and give its first residents a fine home.</p> <p>Robert Adam Architect1 | Penbury Grove</p> <p>The Existing EstateA beautiful parkland setting with its own mature arboretum and Victorian sunken gardenSince 1902 there has always been a grand house at Penbury Grove and since then the Estate has been developed and embellished over the years by a series of indulgent owners. The existing house was originally built by the American engineer Horace Field Parshall to be a replica of Pennsbury Manor, William Penns house in Pennsylvania. William Penn was the founder of the Province of Pennsylvania and from whom Horace believed he was descended. Today, the new owner will be able to enjoy the vision of a rare and exclusive country estate that these individuals had planned so many years ago. The Estate has been appropriately named. Planted when the original estate was laid out, mature trees now grace the grounds and form an established arboretum with many specimens including Chestnut, Oak, Cedar of Lebanon, Scots Pine, Broad Leaf Lime, Western Cedar and Beech. To the northeast of the estate lies a stand of Beech that is designated Ancient Woodland. The grounds feature a recently discovered and restored sunken Victorian alpine garden made with over 300 stone boulders, some weighing over 13 tonnes. Steam powered traction engines would have carried the stone boulders from the railway station at Beaconsfield on their long journey from Derbyshire; smaller stones were pulled by shire horses to create this beautiful garden feature. Now with planning permission for a replacement country house, this is an extraordinary opportunity to create a magnificent country estate.</p> <p>Hidden behind large, established evergreen hedges and recently planted mature specimens, the estate enjoys a wonderful private parkland setting. Exceptional views to unspoilt countryside designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, mean it is unlikely ever to change.</p> <p>3 | The Existing Estate</p> <p>The Proposed EstateAn exceptional new country house and estate with formal gardens and woodland designed by the leading classical architect, Robert AdamThe proposals for the estate are limitless and all options can be customised. The new owner can specify a completely bespoke house or follow the framework imagined by the architect. The house is approached along a tree lined driveway that sweeps by a gate lodge and into mature woodland to arrive at the impressive feature fountain that graces the front of the house. The ground floor includes the principal rooms, with a large kitchen / breakfast and family room, generous vaulted hall, formal staircase and vaulted side galleries. The second floor provides extra living accommodation, together with two, smaller bedrooms and a media room for family use. Outside, the south elevation looks over lawns and is dominated by a grand, raised balustrade that spans the rear of the house providing a luxurious entertaining space and extensive views over the surrounding countryside. Penbury Grove is a stately and impressive house that is both traditional and progressive in design and can rightly take its place in the pantheon of great English country houses. The west wing contains single story garaging and service accommodation, within a discrete parking court. The east wing contains a leisure suite, swimming pool, and access to the gardens.</p> <p>The magnificent frontage of the main house is constructed from two contrasting textures, elegant Portland stone and handmade Michelmersh brick. Classical urns and obelisks decorate the parapet of the house and fine stone detailing and decorative stone garlands have been added to reflect the status of the house.</p> <p>The first floor comprises five bedrooms, all but one of which has access to the south elevation. The central stair and double height hall is a feature of this level, with sunlight from the cupola enriching the spatial quality of the hall and side galleries. Principal rooms are provided with south facing balconies to take advantage of the far reaching views.</p> <p>7 | The Proposed Estate</p> <p>There will be a croquet lawn laid out and tennis court with its own pavilion. In addition, the beautiful rural setting lends itself to all manner of country pursuits riding, shooting and other field sports.</p> <p>The Local Area Penn, BuckinghamshireA location second to none, close to Central London and set in an area of outstanding natural beautyNamed after the Penn family, that included William Penn, the founder of the Province of Pennsylvania in America, the quintessential English village of Penn is one of the most desirable areas in the country to live. The village nestles in the beautiful rolling Chiltern Hills of south Buckinghamshire within countryside that has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its charming old parish church, lovely village green and cosy pubs in unspoilt countryside, it is a village that harks back to a bygone age. The historic market town of Beaconsfield is a short drive away and is well served by most of the major supermarkets including Waitrose. The charming town is packed with boutique shops and wonderful restaurants. For gastronomes, The Waterside Inn owned by the Roux brothers and The Fat Duck Restaurant owned by Heston Blumenthal, and awarded three Michelin stars, Restaurant of the year, Best Restaurant in the World and Best Restaurant in the UK are only 9 miles away. Although the house enjoys great privacy and enjoys exceptional scenic surroundings it is in close proximity to London with access to the M40 just a few miles away. Private flights are handled at nearby Northolt with the larger airports of Heathrow and Gatwick, 18 and 55 miles away respectively. There is an excellent range of private schools in the area including Eton. Further recreational facilities can be enjoyed at the exclusive and sophisticated Stoke Park Club, famous for its golf, lawn tennis and spa. Polo is available at Cowdray Park and Smiths Lawn. Racing is at Epsom, Ascot, Kempton Park and Sandown.</p> <p>All this and yet only 29 miles from Hyde Park Corner in Central London.</p> <p>11 | The Local Area</p> <p>Ground FloorThe ground floor includes the principal rooms, with a large kitchen / breakfast and family room, generous vaulted hall, formal staircase and vaulted side galleries and leisure wing.</p> <p>DRAWING ROOM SNOOKER ROOM</p> <p>RECEPTION HALL</p> <p>CHANGING ROOM</p> <p>LEISURE WINGMORNING ROOM LIBRARY</p> <p>LIFT</p> <p>STEAM &amp; SAUNA ROOM SWIMMING POOL</p> <p>CLOAKS WCS</p> <p>GYM</p> <p>12 | Ground Floor &amp; Basement</p> <p>WINE CELLAR</p> <p>PLANT ROOM</p> <p>DINING ROOM KITCHEN / BREAKFAST / FAMILY</p> <p>BASEMENT</p> <p>WC</p> <p>STORE</p> <p>STUDY STAFF KITCHEN</p> <p>GARAGE</p> <p>UTILITY WING</p> <p>STORE</p> <p>Total sq footage of the proposed house: Gross internal area for proposed house Gross internal area for outbuildings Total gross internal area</p> <p>17,154 sq ft</p> <p>24,919 sq ft</p> <p>7,765 sq ft</p> <p>13 | Ground Floor &amp; Basement</p> <p>First FloorThis level contains a further study plus five bedrooms, with associated facilities, all but one of which has access to the south elevation and views over the grounds.

Grand cedar trees and mature specimens of Pine and Beech are present throughout the estate adding to the established feel to the grounds. Formal gardens will be laid out close to the house including a parterre and reflection pool. Less formal landscaping will be created that merges into the woodland and blends into the overall parkland setting. The formal garden grown from evergreen box and a serene reflection pool shaded by clipped hornbeam trees will provide an elegant walk toward stone steps that lead toward the lower part of the grounds and out to the countryside beyond. Whether in the extensive flower borders or the carefully manicured parterre, everything has been designed to be pleasing and restful. In the traditional English country garden style, a walled kitchen garden, elegant glasshouse and potting shed is planned that will provide fresh produce for the house. There will be a croquet lawn and tennis court with its own pavilion. The beautiful rural setting lends itself to all manner of country pursuits such as riding, shooting and other field sports.</p> <p>19 | Landscaping Proposals</p> <p>In the traditional English country garden style, a walled kitchen garden and elegant glasshouse and potting shed is planned that will provide fresh produce for the house.</p> <p>The ArchitectRobert Adam DIPL ARCH(PCL) RIBA FRSARobert Adam was born in 1948 and trained at the University of Westminster and in 1973 won a Rome Scholarship.
