In Pictures: Inside the incredible Woolmers Park Estate

With 232 acres of completely private land, a Grade II* listed Georgian country house, a famous polo club and some serious provenance, Woolmers Park Estate in Hertfordshire is what you’d call “the whole package”.

At £30m, it’s also one of the biggest instructions outside of London this year, so here’s some background…

The present house was built in the 1730s and records show it passed to Samuel Whitbread the Younger, of the brewing dynasty, in around 1800. Bought by the 3rd Duke of Bridgewater in 1803, the estate was later sold to Sir Gore Ouseley in 1821 – entrepreneur, scholar, protégé of Lord Wellesley in India as a well as a British Ambassador to Persia – who entertained the likes of The Duke of Wellington and the Prime Minister. In 1927, it was acquired by the Earl and Countess of Strathmore, parents of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who spent most of their time there up to the Second World War, only going to Glamis Castle, the family seat in Scotland, between July and September. Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret stayed at Woolmers Park regularly. Chartered Surveyor and businessman Lascelles Arthur Lucas became the owner in 1949 and founded the Hertfordshire Polo Club in the grounds. The current owners bought in 1997.

Key features include 73,000 square feet of combined living space, an Italianate garden designed by Luciano Giubbilei (winner of the Best Show Garden Award at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014 and a three-time Gold Award winner), extensive equestrian facilities including four polo fields and – crucially – a complete lack of public rights of way across the land, says Crispin Holborow, Country Director Savills Private Office: “What sets Woolmers Park apart from many other estates is its fantastic condition, its facilities and close proximity to London. It’s also extremely private, with no public access to the grounds, which is a key consideration.”
