|An unrivalled lifestyle
Amidst 24 acres of beautifully manicured grounds sits Charters Estate, offering the rare combination of peace and tranquility with the highest standard of privacy and security.
|“It’s a lifestyle here, that’s what it’s all about. It’s a Four Seasons style service for residents.”|
Discreetly 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 immediately appealed to me for its beautiful surroundings and total security. I sometimes travel with work so I value the peace of mind knowing everything will be taken care of while I’m away.
The 24 hour concierge service is equally valuable to me, they take care of any deliveries while I’m away, including furniture, and assist with so much, no matter what the hour. It’s a Four Seasons style service for residents. When I arrive here, everything is set up for me. The fridge is full, the apartment is clean, the car is charged, serviced and cleaned. Special deliveries are waiting for me and restaurants are booked.
The design of the apartment is unique with a clear internal character and flexible layout. The mezzanine study area is one of my favourite spots – it’s a lovely bright area for my office and converts into a bedroom if we need a 4th room. We have beautiful views over the gardens here and we’re not overlooked, it’s very private.
We’ve done a significant amount of work during our time here, it’s now a modern, turn-key home from home. We’ve upgraded the technology including Sonos, the heating system and TVs which we can access remotely too. Last year we renovated all the bathrooms so they’re now luxurious with hotel style touches. We’ve created a modern but classic living space. As soon as I walk in the door, everything is just perfect, it makes living here very easy and stress free.
I fly often so being so near LHR is invaluable. I can be off the plane and back in Charters within 30 minutes. London is easy to reach and locally we have great restaurants, shops, golf and leisure facilities. Everything is so easy here, we’re right in the middle of everything we need.
It’s a lifestyle here, that’s what it’s all about. The grounds are amazing and the leisure facilities are a complete lifestyle with peace of mind and everything taken care of. It’s been perfect for me as a home when I’m in the UK but would work equally well for someone living here full time.
