Architecture and Properties in Ascot, Berkshire, SL5
World famous for its horse racing, Ascot is one of the most affluent towns in England. The small commuter town is a prosperous and thriving enclave surrounded by Berkshire’s pretty heaths and woods. Ascot has an eclectic selection of properties that range from attractive Victorian cottages to luxury apartments and penthouses. It is also an area where custom-built mansions exist alongside country houses and country estates. Older-style houses are frequently demolished and rebuilt, usually in a traditional style, fetching around £3 million.
The property market is focused on large family homes and the area is rich in listed buildings and verdant green spaces. Ascot Place is a Grade II listed 18th-century mansion, set in 400 acres of parkland that also contains a Grade I listed grotto. Dating back to 1339, it was bought for £18 million in 1989. All Saints Parish Church is a nineteenth-century building which consists of local red brick with Portland stone pillars and several stained-glass windows.
If you are lucky enough to live in Ascot, or are planning to do so, you will need an interior as beguiling as your address. Callender Howorth’s Ascot interior designers can work with you to create your dream home, regardless of size, style or structure.
