Dormy Palms is one of the area's finest lifestyle properties, uniquely and exclusively located on the 7th hole of East Berkshire Golf Course. The course is ranked as high as the 5th best golf courses in Berkshire by the website Top 100 Golf Courses. Dormy Palms is the most significant residence on the course and it's a very rare opportunity to purchase this lifestyle mansion that has only come to the market for the second time. The sale involves two houses with the guest house being used for entertaining. Both properties face a number of quality golfing holes.
Located at the end of a long driveway inside the heart of East Berkshire Golf Course, this unique residence is positioned on a stunning, secluded plot in excess of 1.25 acres. Dormy Palms is accessed by two sets of handmade electric gates. The first set leads to the front house which can be used both as a guest house or private clubhouse. This allows much entertaining without interference of the main residence. The second set of gates leads to the main residence which is set over four floors, with the welcoming entrance hall setting the tone for the spacious and airy accommodation. The French inspired Berkshire-based mansion includes eight reception rooms on the ground and lower ground floor and six bedrooms and five bath/shower rooms on the first and second floors, with a balcony off the galleried landing giving panoramic views across the golf course. The lower ground floor is an ideal leisure and social area with the gym, cinema room, games room and boardroom being complemented by a kitchen and a double shower room.
The guest house/private clubhouse is an excellent entertaining space, equipped for a large number of guests with an open plan ground floor stocked with kitchen facilities and French doors leading out onto the substantial-sized patio, ideal for alfresco entertaining. There are four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, leaving flexibility with usage of the second property. Two bedrooms have additional kitchenettes. The guest house could also be privately let for approximately £30,000 per annum and we would expect high demand.
The formal gardens are a private haven for entertaining and relaxing with numerous unique features to enhance any lifestyle. Included in the extensive grounds are a floodlit 3G football pitch, children's playground, covered hydrotherapy spa, a delightful water feature and garden audio and visual entertainment system. There is a summer house set to the rear of the gardens, with an open plan kitchen/living area and double shower room, which could be used as servant quarters.
Dormy Palms is located a short walk from the clubhouse, putting green and practice facilities. Amazingly, holes 6,7,13,14,16 and 17 can be seen from the houses and all are less than 2 to 3 minutes walk to the mansion, meaning keen golfers can play a number of holes and return home. The location is incredible for golfers who wish to be best located for ease and convenience. A number of high profile sport stars, including a past Ryder Cup Captain winner, have played the course with the current owners.
For car enthusiasts, there is secure parking for up to 20 cars and a temperature controlled, detached double garage that has been renovated with tiles and finished to match the main residence.
This exclusive location has no residential dwellings nearby and is positioned conveniently for Blackbushe Airport, for private charters, access to the M3, M4 and London. By arrangement, East Berkshire Golf Course may entertain private helicopters on its own grounds. One of the country's most prominent schools Wellington College is just a 10minute walk away as is the local train station.
