Hanover Private are real estate specialists in super prime property sales and lettings on the Wentworth Estate at Virginia Water and the surrounding areas of Englefield Green, Windlesham, Sunningdale, Ascot, Bagshot and Chobham.

The tranquil and exclusive Wentworth Estate is probably the best country address within close proximity to London. Favoured by some of the world’s most influential families as a place to relax and unwind, Wentworth is located 23 miles from central London and 13 miles from London Heathrow Airport. The Wentworth Estate is split into two areas: the ‘main island’ which is home to the club house, tennis courts, swimming pools and health club, and four golf courses including the world famous PGA championship West Course. The main island of Wentworth has a number of luxurious houses and mansion set in plots from roughly 1 to 13 acres in size. The second area of Wentworth is closer to the centre of the local village of Virginia Water, where family homes sit of plots which range in size from 0.5 - 13 acres.

Virginia Water and the Wentworth Estate are situated to the south of Windsor Great Park, with its open spaces and is home to the notable lakes and green spaces of Savill Gardens. Windsor Great Park extends for over 5,000 acres all the way to Windsor Castle, one of the favoured homes of HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

With a prestigious reputation, an international community and a wide range of luxury properties, the exclusive village of Virginia Water in Surrey has been a coveted pocket of South-East England since it was developed by W G Tarrant in the 1920s. Built on the site of Wentworth Estate House, now home to the Wentworth Club, the Estate comprises of just 1750 acres of land, much of which is privately owned or protected by green belt laws to prevent overcrowding.Originally intended as a collection of exclusive weekend cottages, Wentworth is particularly popular with city-dwellers looking for a second home, or for families seeking an easy daily commute into London or across Europe. Commuting to London is very convenient from here, as is foreign travel with Heathrow Airport and Fairoaks Private Airport both less than seven miles away. The seclusion and privacy afforded by the area’s location has led to a strong royal presence, with present and previous residents including the Sultan of Brunei and Sarah, Duchess of York.

Architecture in Wentworth

The majority of luxury properties in Wentworth are built in a classical style of Neo-Georgian or Neo-Classical, with symetrical features surrounding stone pillars with imposing pediments. The older ‘Tarrent’ houses are build in the Arts and Crafts style which have dormer windows and tall chimneys. There are some Huf Haus and modern houses with a limited number of Art Deco houses remaining.

What makes Wentworth so special?

Owning a home on Wentworth offers you the best of both worlds - a safe and secure leafy environment for family life, with easy access to central London and the rest of the world via Heathrow Airport, or Farnborough for those who travel by private jet. Wentworth is a private estate and this leafy, green village of Virginia Water is guaranteed to remain this way, due to a green belt, trust-controlled woods, property regulations and a local estate committee which protects the interests of the community.
