19 May Buyers get into pole position as F1 legend Sir Jack Brabham’s former luxury apartment goes on sale
F1 legend Sir Jack Brabham’s former penthouse apartment at Lyne Manor House in Surrey is on the market. Sad news of his death comes as a shock to F1 supporters around the globe who remember Sir Jack’s fearless bravery which crowned him World Champion three times over.
Indeed Brabham’s former home, the Wentworth Estate, is renown for its great wealth and it’s a common sight to see a Bugatti, Lamborghini, Maserati or Ferrari cruising around the private roads of this exclusive North Surrey estate.
So for F1 fans, what could be more exciting than owning a luxury property where a three times Formula One champion racing car driver lived?
Lynne Manor The penthouse apartment is located in Lyne Place Manor, an imposing Regency house with eight acres of delightful gardens, located just two miles south of Virginia Water. Lyne Place Manor had been the home of the Russian philosopher P. D. Ouspensky between 1930 and 1947 and after his death, was subsequently split into luxury apartments.
The house is approached via a long private drive with the unique penthouse enjoying a secluded, south-facing roof terrace which offers commanding views over the surrounding countryside and woods.
Boasting its own private lift, three reception rooms, two double bedrooms (the master with en-suite and dressing room) and a further room which could be used as a further bedroom or study, the accommodation is spacious and flexible.
Rupert Wyatt of award-winning appointed selling agent, Barton Wyatt comments:
“It is sad news to hear of Sir Jack Braham’s death. I am a keen F1 fan myself and love the buzz of motor racing. It will make the sale of this property even more special with this connection to a racing hero. Sir Jack was a three times winner of the Formula One championship and the founder of the Brabham team, racing in an era when the stakes were high and accidents frequent.
“This penthouse apartment is a really lovely opportunity to own something steeped in history but with all the mod cons expected today. We expect interest to be high with a number of clients already keen to get to the chequered flag on this property.”
The penthouse apartment in Lyne Place Manor is available for £825,000. For more information call Barton Wyatt on 01344 843 000 or visit www.bartonwyatt.co.uk.
