Buyers have been battling to get into pole position, as F1 legend Sir Jack Brabham's former penthouse apartment at Lyne Manor House near Virginia Water enters the market.
Indeed the Wentworth Estate is already known 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 the petrol heads out there, what could be more exciting than owning a luxury property where a three times Formula One champion racing car driver lived?
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 at Wentworth Park.
Lyne Place Manor had been the home of the Russian philosopher PD 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.
- The penthouse apartment in Lyne Place Manor is available for £895,000. For more information call Barton Wyatt on 01344 843 000 or visit bartonwyatt.co.uk.
