Sales News: Network Auctions instructed to sell Thakeham Manor
Leading UK auction house Network Auctions have been instructed on Thakenham Manor in West Sussex, a unique property that has recently been in the open market at £6.6 million and which has been independently valued by a Chartered Surveyor at £6.75 million.
The property is a stunning modern detached family residence in the design style of Sir Edward Lutyens and extends to some 11683 square feet of accommodation. The property also has 16 acres of grounds featuring a trout lake, tennis courts, swimming pool and golfing green. There is garaging for three vehicles and a helipad.
Located in the village of Thakeham near Pulborough, the property is located just 50 miles from Central London which can be reached in just 12 minutes by helicopter.
The house was built in 2012 to the highest specification and is guaranteed by a 10 year Local Authority Building Control Warranty.
The seller, global entrepreneur and businessman Jon Robinson has now placed the property with Network Auctions to sell in their July auction at a guide price of £4.5 million+.
Mr Robinson’s business interests keep him overseas and he cites the transparency and certainty of selling by auction together with the track record of Network Auctions as the prime reasons for instructing them as his auctioneers.
The property will go to auction at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane on July 9th.
To date, the highest UK price ever achieved for a single residential property at auction is £4.8 million for a property in Central London and so this sale (if the hammer falls) will be the highest sale outside of the capital and possibly the highest auction sale of a residential property ever achieved in the UK.
Toby Limbrick, Managing Director of Network Auctions said: “We are naturally delighted to have been selected as auctioneers on this incredible property which we are certain will attract interest from buyers in the UK and abroad.
