Gary Hersham, Founding Director of Beauchamp Estates said: ‘Beauchamp Estates is delighted with the record sale at Windsor Park Hall which is a magnificent country mansion, located on the doorstep of Windsor Great Park.
‘It is one of the finest mansions in the Home Counties and alongside spacious reception rooms and beautifully appointed bedroom suites it offers everything needed for luxurious living, with a swimming pool, leisure complex and even its own private helipad.
‘In terms of architecture Windsor Park Hall is a neo-classical English mansion, in the style of Winfield House and Osterley Park House, and this was also what persuaded our client to purchase the property, they are buying into the finest British craftsmanship.’
Marcus O’ Brien, Head of Beauchamp Estates Private Office says: ‘Purchased for £21.5 million, Windsor Park Hall is one of the biggest residential property deals in Surrey in the last five years.
‘This sale highlights a huge shift in sentiment for many of our clients, triggered by the pandemic, who are now seeking to buy super-prime homes/estates outside of Central London.’
