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.
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.
