Situated on the prestigious Wentworth Estate, this fantastic family home offers 10,500 square feet of spacious accommodation over three floors, including a studio flat and indoor swimming pool complex with luxury steam and sauna rooms.
Originally built in 2005, this is the first time since construction that Rochester House has been brought to market. The current owner has meticulously refurbished to a high standard with bespoke joinery by Francesco Malone, Swarovski lighting and air-conditioning in certain areas.
The property is set back from the road, with a gated entrance and a generous driveway, offering plenty of space for parking a number of vehicles.
Entering via a spacious hallway will lead you to the principal reception rooms, including an impressive drawing room with built-in bar and fireplace – perfect for entertaining or enjoying a cosy night in. From here a charming orangery can be accessed, which can be enjoyed all year round and looks out onto the superbly landscaped gardens.
The ground floor also comprises a study with bespoke Francesco Malone furnishings, ideal for a home office. A formal dining area and library with Mark Wilkinson furniture can also be found on this floor, along with an elegantly designed kitchen with substantial cabinetry, a range of built-in Miele appliances and a large central island. A prep kitchen and utility room leads off from the kitchen. From the utility room a triple garage can be accessed, part of which has cleverly been converted into a temperature-controlled wine store.
Access to a superb indoor swimming pool complex with adjoining steam and sauna rooms is available from the ground floor, which leads onto the gardens through patio doors. There is also a storage and coat room.
Heading up the stairs to the first floor leads you to a stunning principal bedroom, boasting access to a large dressing room, Francesco Malone furniture and en- suite, with walk-in shower and bath.

What’s more, there is a separate outdoor kitchen and covered seating area, perfect for entertaining or spending time with the family.
