Design your own 70 room stately home! Huge mansion with two swimming pools, gym, bowling alley and cinema goes on the market for £7.5m (but new owner will have to spend another £13m to build it first)

  • A plot is for sale for £7.5million with a 11-bed stately home expected to cost a buyer a further £13million
  • An older house that currently occupies the plot will be demolished to make room for the 70-room building
  • Situated on the Crown Estate at Oxshott, Surrey, the plot has planning permission and a developer in place

The plot for an as-yet-unbuilt mansion is for sale for £7.5million – and any prospective owner will have to be prepared to fork out an extra £13million for the construction of a 70-room stately home.

The patch of land on the Crown Estate at Oxshott, Surrey – which currently features an older property – already has planning permission and a developer in place.

The brand new property will have 11 bespoke bedroom suites and three kitchens – one for the family, one for a professional caterer and one for staff.

It will also have an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a gym, a professional snooker room, bowling alley, wine cellar and cinema room.

The plans also cater for a two-floor garage with heated stone flooring, climate control, a car lift and turning circle.

Outside, there will be a tennis court, the heated pool, a balcony terrace spa, croquet laws and private woodland access.

The house will also have CCTV motion detection, steel reinforced concrete walls and bullet-proof triple glazing.

The mansion is expected to feature 11 luxurious bedrooms if a buyer can be found to pay the £13 million cost of the build

Although brand new, the design for Hampton Hall is classical Georgian with Cotswold stone and a Welsh-slate used to build it

The build plot and planned home is being marketed by Sotheby’s International Realty and Hamptons International.

Director and head of sales at UK Sotheby’s International Realty, Jason Corbett said: ‘The plot is £7.5m and that’s what you would pay the stamp duty on.

‘You would then employ the developer contractually if you want to build – you can’t buy the plot without contracting that company to build the house. They would build you the bespoke property.’

The family kitchen room offers a place for those living in the house to make themselves a quick snack in between meals cooked for them by a chef in the separate catering kitchen

This 20-person table offers enough space for a large dinner party. Bay windows at the head of the table allow light to flood into the dining room

The back of the house showcases 12 upstairs windows as well as large wall-to-ceiling downstairs windows to allow as much light as possible into the building

He said the design that had been approved allowed for around 29,000 sq ft of house making it roughly £475 per sq ft to produce.

He said: ‘The buyers will be surrounded by some of the country’s biggest sporting names. It is only around 25 minutes from Chelsea on a Sunday afternoon drive.’

The house will be close to Esher, Cobham and Weybridge which have independent shops, boutiques and award-winning restaurants. 

Developer Stately Homes says the property is just 12 miles from exclusive boutique shopping in Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Bond Street.

It also flags up ‘neighbouring world-class sporting venues such as Twickenham, Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, Wentworth Golf Course, Wimbledon and Royal Ascot’ as well as the Guards Polo club in Windsor Great Park.
