Watching the BMW PGA Championship? Admiring Wentworth? Thinking to yourself, ‘I could live on that estate’?
Yes, you could. But you’re going to need a massive bank balance.
As anybody who has been to see the European Tour’s flagship event will know, the grounds around the golf course are dominated by huge, spectacular houses. Those to have lived in the estate down the years include four-time major winner Ernie Els and current European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn.
Remember the British boxer ‘Prince’ Naseem Hamed? It’s reported that he once lived there, too.
There’s no getting around it, it’s a rather nice place to live. But, like most nice things, it’s also expensive.
Very, very expensive.
Check out this place that’s currently for sale on the estate grounds.
Built in the 1930s by British architect Oliver Hill, this modernist, curved property occupies a four-acre parcel of land right at the heart of the estate and is the former country estate of US ambassador John Hay Whitney.
As of right now, it’s up for sale – with a guide price of £30m.
That’s right: THIRTY. MILLION. POUNDS.
For context’s sake, only two players – Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy – have European Tour career earnings of more than £30m.
So, what do you get for your money?
Six bedrooms; six bathrooms; six reception rooms; an underground swimming pool; secondary accommodation; a basement cinema; a study; a laundry; a wine cellar – and that’s just for starters.
