The Wentworth Estate extends to approximately 1,750 acres, it’s history dates back to the early 1920’s when the visionary developer, Tarrant purchased an agricultural estate around which he created his rural dream of substantial mansions set in beautiful mature gardens. Today there are three 18 hole golf courses including the Championship West Course and the Wentworth Club with swimming pools, restaurants, tennis courts, health and leisure facilities. The estate also has CCTV security cameras on all entrances which are linked to the local Police and Knight Security. The local centres of Virginia Water, Sunningdale, Ascot and Windsor cater for day to day shopping requirements. Communications are excellent with the M25, M3 and M4 close by giving fast access to the motorway network, London, Heathrow and Gatwick.
Sporting facilities in the area are numerous with many golf and country clubs as well as the racecourse at Ascot and Polo at Smiths Lawn in Windsor Great Park. Schooling is exceptional with many renowned private schools such as Eton College, Heathfield, Papplewick, Sunningdale, St Mary’s, Hurst Lodge, St Georges Ascot and St John’s Beaumont.
