Robert Osborn, Founding Director of Consero London said:
“’Furze Croft’ sets a new benchmark for quality and luxury in the St George’s Hill housing market. It is defined by its exceptional quality; architectural integrity and fine attention to detail. The house has involved hundreds of man-hours and a team of skilled artisans providing the very best of British, French and Italian craftsmanship amongst various other countries. Using centuries old techniques, stone carving, guilding, marquetry and cabinetry has been combined with state-of-the-art communications, entertainment and security technology. The result is an extremely special and unique residence of outstanding value.”
Steve Glover, Founding Director of Consero London said:
“Despite is size, ‘Furze Croft’ has been designed to be a real family home that pleases and impresses its occupants and visitors. We have carefully balanced its large entertaining rooms with cosy and intimate informal spaces where the family can relax and interact. The local housing market is lacking brand-new 21st century mansions of this quality and advanced specification. St George’s Hill is one of the finest private estates outside of central London, making ‘Furze Croft’ both a good turn-key investment as well an outstanding country retreat close to the capital.”
Accessed via private tree lined boulevards, the leafy St George’s Hill estate has both golf and tennis clubs, large water features and abundance of manicured green spaces. The estate’s mansions and houses are all set in gated landscaped grounds of over one acre in size. St George’s Hill provides easy access to central London, M25 and Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.
