We specialise in high-end property in the prime areas of Sunningdale, Virginia Water and the Wentworth Estate, Ascot, Windlesham and Chobham.

Property in Sunningdale
Sunningdale is noted for its ultra-prime property, ranging from period country houses to bespoke modern mansions. But the area also boasts a fine choice of townhouses, cottages and apartments, accommodating a wide range of buyers.
The Wentworth Estate is the most exclusive enclave, a prime mixture of glamorous modern homes and original, 1920s ‘Tarrant’ houses that attracts the international wealthy. The Estate’s ‘Main Island’ is theplace to live.
Sunningdale’s premiere roads include Titlarks Hill, Ridgemount Road and Fireball Hill, which thread their way through swathes of golf course. For more space, head to the pretty village of Windlesham, and the large period and modern houses in Westwood Road and Hatton Road. Windlesham also has a good selection of pretty cottages from about £350,000, giving it a good mixed community. For genuinely rural property with up to 20 acres, look around Chobham — a very pretty village in glorious countryside.
