The original and well documented Grade-2 listed building of 1938, has been painstakingly restored to its art deco heritage; the Mansion retains its exquisite detailing and sense of grandeur. The Great Hall, flooded with light from the south facing double-height windows gives views onto the lawns, water gardens and rolling hills beyond.

Referred to as ‘Vogue Regency’ style by Osbert Lancaster, many of the period architectural details and internal design elements are preserved or recreated, as well as the original opulent yet intimate sense of proportion.

Distinctive features include the bronze window frames which travel around the side of the building and provide uninterrupted views of the gardens. The original American Walnut wood panelling has been preserved and many of the apartments retain their original features such as an elegantly mannered fireplace, fine walnut bookcases and in one, a genuine and sumptuous bespoke marble bathroom.

The Mansion is a 20th Century icon transformed for 21st Century living.
