111-acre ‘London’ estate with private golf course goes on sale

The Lakesview Estate has been launched by Strutt & Parker's Country Department

An extraordinary 111-acre “private sanctuary” in the midst of London’s green belt has hit the market at £12m.

Just 15 miles from the centre of town, the Lakesview Estate has been launched by Strutt & Parker’s Country Department. It’s a real one-off, says the team…

Apart from the remarkable acreage/location combo, there’s also complete absence of public rights of way across the land, ensuring total privacy. Whatsmore, the house is surrounded by its own private nine-hole golf course, which was converted from 90 acres of old strawberry fields.

We’re not talking a few flags dotted about either – this is the real deal. The whole thing is fully irrigated with a sprinkler system covering all of the gardens, fairways, greens and paths, and drains into existing watercourses that top up the two lakes on the course and those behind the house.

The main five-bed house, Lakesview, was given a top-to-toe refurb in 2008 and comes with a pool, tennis court and stables. The package also includes another five-bed property called Broadview, accessed separately from Farnborough Common. 

Here’s a quick tour…
