An English country manor like no other

There’s nothing quite like a classic English country manor – the kind that you might be dreaming about after watching Saltburn (or, more recently, The Gentlemen). If you’re after a grand house of your own, you’ll want to check out this jaw-dropping estate in Hampshire, which was commissioned by none other than the Bonham Carter family. 

This Mansion Was Commissioned By The Bonham Carter Family

Love taking a peek inside celebrity properties? Well, this sprawling estate is particularly unique: it dates back to 1858, when the Bonham Carter family commissioned renowned architect Pihlip Hardwick to create their ancestral home. It remained in the family until 1992 (although sadly Helena Bonham Carter never resided there) and has since been divided into three lots, the largest and most impressive of which – named West Court – is now on the market.

Living room with ceiling cornicing, parquet flooring and white sofas.

Set in 32 acres of grounds in the Hampshire hamlet of Adhurst St Mary, this Grade II listed Gothic Victorian property commands breathtaking views of the South Downs. It really is a country home that rivals the Saltburn manor: you can expect eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and an array of magnificent reception areas including a billiards room, music room, artist’s studio, home gym and even its own library. The current owner purchased the property in 2014 and set about meticulously restoring its period elements, as well as adding plenty of contemporary luxuries, too.

From wood panelling and marble fireplaces to soaring ceilings and large windows, you’ll spot breathtaking features throughout the house – which spans more than 7,600 square feet of internal space. Outside, meanwhile, you can take a stroll across the formal lawns and explore gorgeous sections of woodland.

If you fancy becoming the next resident of this jaw-dropping estate, you’ll need to have a cool £2.75 million to spare. The Saltburn life never did come cheap, after all.
