An unrivalled lifestyle
Amidst 24 acres of beautifully manicured grounds sits Charters Estate, offering the rare combination of peace and tranquillity with the highest standard of privacy and security.
Discretely located between Sunningdale and Sunninghill, Charters is within easy reach of London, Heathrow airport and the M25, M3 and M4 motorways. Closer to home, this area is renowned for superb restaurants, shops and world class recreational facilities including Wentworth Golf Club, Ascot race-course and Guards Polo Club.
For lazy days at home, Charters has private leisure facilities available to residents, and a Concierge service capable of organising most anything you may desire.
Charters has a rich history dating from the Art Deco era and the renovation to create the apartments and the new Garden House and Court blocks has stayed true to that. Indeed, the original architect of the listed building consulted with the developers on the building and renovation works.
Commissioned by Frank Parkinson in the late 1930s, the centrepiece of Charters Estate followed the Art Deco principle of ‘purposeful living’ and incorporated state of the art technology and finishes, some of which remain today.
Upon completion, Country Life lauded Charters as “One of the last great country houses to be built in Britain” and the “Blueprint for future country-house living”. Confirming its social status, Charters went on to play host to Sir Winston Churchill and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, post abdication.
In the early 2000s Charters underwent a significant renovation to create the apartments and lifestyle we see today.
The grounds and apartments pay homage to the Art Deco era. The original garden columns, now Grade II listed remain, while the new building interiors are finished with polished steel and illuminated etched glass. Charters remains a great country estate to be enjoyed at the highest of today’s standards.
Privacy & Security
Charters is a high security estate. Cameras around the perimeter are monitored by 24-hour on-site security and only the Concierge can admit guests who are in turn escorted to their hosts’ apartment.
This is a home for people to relax from the stresses and attentions of the outside world. Further details on security measures can be provided on request.
I moved into Charters Estate with my partner a few years ago. The apartment was the perfect size for us and the estate is the most incredible place to live. Driving into the estate has the wow factor every time, the tree lined entrance is really impressive.
The views over the garden from this apartment were a real selling point and the interior is very well laid out. The kitchen has everything you need and it’s cleverly designed so cooking and entertaining are easy here. The interior is all high spec and has stood the test of time very well. You don’t find that very often in apartments.
You don’t have to think about security, it’s a huge benefit. I used all the facilities regularly; steam room, hot tub, billiards room, pool, tennis court, sauna. The vast majority of the time you’re the only one there so it’s like having your own private facilities.
Charters has everything in terms of space, facilities and security. To recreate it in your own home would cost millions with the pool, grounds and concierge… there’s nothing like it in the area. A friend lives in One Hyde Park and was blown away by Charters. The array of facilities is so much better here but at a fraction of the price.
Whoever moves here will love it, I’ve no doubt.
