With only two family owners in its lifetime, this magnificent residence was designed by Benjamin Chilwell as an English country cottage on a grand scale. The house, known as St. Ann's, was designed in 1914 for prominent businessman and philanthropist Charles Isaac Nathan, of the merchant family that founded Arthur H. Nathan and Co.
It has stood the test of time with a level of craftsmanship seldom seen. The rooms within this beautiful home are so spacious, with a mix of formal and informal areas, that words are inadequate to describe the ambiance, rare to find today.
The living areas offer today's family the grace and luxury of timeless character. The large entrance hall and the second staircase will enable you to use the spaces in flexible ways. The grand staircase is simply breath-taking as are the brass railings on the mezzanine level of the library which was modeled on a corner of the famous author, Sir Walter Scott.
The six bedrooms are equally grand and spacious, and with several en-suites, there is plenty of capacity on the upper floor, which has the same area as the ground floor.
The home faces north-east to approximately 3,000 sq m of land in this premium location, with a mix of gardens and large flat lawns for children to run to their hearts content. With wonderful garden features like the cherry tree walk, the box parterre garden, a folly, and with the upper and lower levels connected by paths and stunning brick steps, it is a really magical landscape, so rare to find today.
In this top location, with proximity to both private schools and Grammar schools, plus the easy access to Newmarket and the latest in luxury shopping, St. Ann's could be your home for years to come.
To be only the third owner in 106 years, you are set to make lasting memories here.
