Buyer nets £12.5m Wimbledon mansion

Important Grade II listed pile sells after £4m price chop

One of the most impressive period mansions in Wimbledon has been been sold after hitting the market back in 2014.

The Grade II listed seat sits in just under two acres of grounds in the salubrious south west London enclave and packs a full 9,500 square feet of internal space.

Originally listed at £16.5m, the owners – named as the Beckwith family in a big splash in the Mail a couple of years ago – subsequently lowered the asking to £12.5m, which seems to have done the trick.

Built in 1867 on the site of an 18th century estate with formal gardens and some spectacular views, the house underwent a monumental refurbishment programme in 1995 under the supervision of the Edward Hill Partnership, resulting in the some particularly rich interiors.

Key selling features included four grand receptions, a stunner of a conservatory, separate staff accommodation, a floodlit tennis court, heated outdoor swimming pool, Japanese garden, and that vista of course.
