“There are no such things as problems here. Life is easy and stress free”
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.

Charters Estate is difficult to describe really, it’s unique so there’s nothing to compare it to. Once you’ve visited, it leaves a big impression. I’ve been visiting Charters Estate for 12 years now as a close relative lives here, and fell in love with the lifestyle. It’s such a relaxing place to be, so quiet and the grounds and facilities are fantastic, so I bought my own apartment here!
I have an office in London and travel extensively for work, being so close to Heathrow and an hour’s commute from the city has been invaluable, yet when I get home I feel a world away from the bustle, but still have excellent restaurants and bars nearby. This is an ideal place to relax and unwind, and great for entertaining.
The leisure facilities here are incredible for me and my guests, friends love coming to stay! I’ve made good use of the pool, gym and tennis court. The pavilion in the grounds is a great new addition for BBQs and parties, it can be privately booked and it’s heated so it works well year-round.
The open plan living area is just what I wanted, it works perfectly for me when I’m home alone and it’s brilliant for dinner parties. I have a wall of windows with one of the best views on the estate, so even during lockdown I still felt connected to the outdoors. I’d start my mornings with coffee on the balcony reading the news and started the day feeling fresh and relaxed.
I sometimes work abroad for extended periods and apartments here rent well, so it was a good investment as well as a home. When I was transferred overseas I rented the apartment out. I had it freshly decorated and fully furnished so everything is pretty much new! The return on investment is good and the estate attracts good quality tenants. The management team here are fantastic too so I don’t have to worry about the apartment or my tenants when I’m away.
My move overseas is now permanent so sadly I need to let the apartment go. I’ve no doubt whoever moves in will love it here, several residents love it so much they’ve bought multiple properties, which says a lot about the cache of the estate.
