An Iconic and Historic British Modernist Home on the Wentworth Estate.

Cherry Hill is a ‘sui generis’ or one of a kind home; there is no direct comparison. Originally completed in 1935 by architect Oliver Hill, this home has become an incredible example of British Modernist Architecture. Hill took inspiration from the architectural style of the 1920’s, and designs of the famous architect Mies van der Rohe. The exterior architecture is reminiscent of cruise liners of the period, from the lines and characteristics, accentuated by port holes, to the ribbon windows, and the dramatic concave curve of the building itself.

The ambitious remodel retained the original architecture while creating a wholly sustainable modern home with the space, amenities, and services expected from a home of such calibre. The property consists of a series of perfectly resolved spaces, linking the main house to its east and west wings and to a separate, but connected guest-house pavilion. The home’s elegance is enhanced by the attention to the quality and quantity of light that has been meticulously designed to flow into each space through the large floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, and sliding doors. The home praises the formative architects of the last century with its use of extravagant materials including imperial brown granite, zebra-veined calacatta marble, Kilimanjaro onyx, and verde tinos marble, strategically placed to further enhance the feeling of space and light.

Located in one of the UK’s most prestigious residential estates, The Wentworth Estate, this home occupies the most significant position at the heart of the central island. The gated community is home to The Wentworth Club, which is well-known as one of the world’s most premiere golf and country clubs with three championship golf courses, a tennis and health club, the famous castled clubhouse, and an active social calendar.

Set over 4 acres of landscaped and wooded land, the home is set behind an impressive driveway and hidden from the road. The building is surrounded by beautiful details meant to enhance the architecture and captivate the eye – the reflective square pond, the series of garden terraces, sweeping steps and water fountains, a formal lawn, and the grand Scot pines and other mature foliage defining the property’s perimeter.

History and prestige are at the foundation of this home. Once owned by American Ambassador John Whitney, he used this country home to entertain and engrain himself in British society, befriending the Queen and Prince Phillip, Princess Margaret, and Prime Minister Harold MacMillan. Whitney also formed lifetime friendships with Hollywood’s starlights, including Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth, Bing Crosby, and Clark Gable. His involvement funded films such as Gone With the Wind and Rebecca.

Wentworth Estate is set between the southwestern villages of Virginia Water and Sunningdale, and only a few miles from Ascot and the Royal Estate at Windsor. The house has easy access to the M3, M4, and M25 motorway, meaning Central London is only a 45 minute drive or train journey away and Heathrow Airport only 20 minutes away.
