Situated within one of England’s most sought after private estates, Camp End Manor is a stunning new residence presented in an idyllic and unique setting.
Designed to an exacting standard by architects Lees Associates and interior designed by LINLEY, from its very conception the design and construction has been a devoted exercise in providing the highest standard of living to its residents. The design of the house was a direct response to the house’s unique location, its simple, sensitive plan provides balance and harmony, and its generous ceiling heights, windows and skylights allow natural light to flood its spaces. It is a home that truly lifts the spirits.
Occupying one of the highest plots on St. George’s Hill, the house is in an authentic Regency style and extends to c. 1,600 sq.m (gross external area) set in c. 6,000 sq.m of land and landscaped gardens.
The house is spread over two above–ground storeys and one basement level arranged around a grand elliptical central staircase. The top–lit staircase is a pioneering post–tensioned solid stone structure, making it remarkably slender and providing an elegant focus to the heart of the house.
Winner of The Design et Al International Design & Architecture Awards 2017 and the What House? Award 2017 as ‘Best Luxury House’, this is a truly unique opportunity to acquire a landmark property in a one–of–a–kind position.
The principal living spaces are arranged in the three wings of the house around the stair hall at ground floor level, with ancillary accommodation efficiently occupying the spaces between. The master bedroom suite occupies the full length of the south side of the house at first floor level, and it is from here that the view across the landscape can be appreciated the most. The en–suite bathrooms to bedrooms 2 and 3 have huge skylights that cover the entire ceiling, filling the bathrooms with light. Respecting the rules of classical proportions of space and volume was a key design driver; as a result all principal rooms have floor to ceiling heights of 3.5m. Smaller ancillary rooms have lower ceilings but these are still a generous 2.7m, giving the house a wonderful sense of balance. It’s simple, sensitive plan provides balance and harmony and its generous ceiling heights, windows and skylights allow natural light to flood its spaces.
The lower ground floor contains the leisure spaces. Descending down the helical stairs, you glimpse the 12 metre swimming pool through a full–height glazed wall before arriving in the wine bar – perfect for unwinding after a swim or workout. A cinema room and gym lead off from the wine bar but the principal destination is the pool room itself, with changing rooms, sauna and hammam spa.
The deep ink blue mosaic tiles of the pool contrast beautifully with the pale limestone floor and polished plaster walls. The far end of the pool room projects out under the garden, where an oculus roof light draws natural light down to be reflected by the pool and filling the space with natural daylight. Linked to the end of the pool is a spa area from where the full benefit of the roof light can be enjoyed.
Camp End Manor is not just a luxury home by virtue of its fixtures and fittings; from its very conception its design and construction has been a devoted exercise in providing the highest standard of living to its residents.
