England Mansion 9683 is "A Stately Home in Miniature" is a comment often made by visitors - and quite rightly so.

It is one of the finest examples of a Queen Ann House in Berkshire and is owned by the Astor family. The Astor family who live there are descendants of William Waldorf Astor who emigrated from England in 1891 and whose roots are deeply embedded in the United States.

The house is gracious and splendid and has exquisite furnishings and furniture while remaining ostensibly a cozy family home.

Surrounded by 2,000 acres it affords complete privacy with spectacular views over seven counties from Walbury Hill and is within 50 minutes drive from Heathrow International Airport.

All of the 8 bedrooms have private bathrooms and there is an indoor heated swimming pool, an all weather tennis court, croquet lawn and billiard room.

Located just outside Hungerford in the glorious Berkshire countryside, possessing all the grandeur of a large Country House whilst having proportions that give it a friendly and informal family atmosphere, a classic Queen Anne architecture at its best and has 8 Double Bedrooms each with its own very distinctive character and private bathroom.

The elegant south facing reception rooms are filled with a fine collection of English and French furniture and paintings and enjoy impressive views across wooded parkland up to 'Combe Gibbet' on Gallows Hill - last used to hang two murderers in 1676!

Ideally situated for Corporate activities of almost all kinds being only 50 minutes drive from Heathrow International Airport and about 1 1/4 hours from Central London. The seclusion and rural setting make it secure, private and above all safe for Board Meetings, small conferences, seminars, hospitality events and all kinds of rural and outdoor pursuits. All this is combined with the stylish and comfortable accommodation and excellent cuisine that the mansion has to offer. Delegates can take advantage of the indoor heated swimming pool, the croquet lawns, the private gardens, the all weather tennis court and billiard room and over 2,000 acres of a private sporting estate.

The Estate is spectacular and so close to London as well as many important and historic sites such as Oxford, Bath, Windsor, Blenheim Palace, Stonehenge and the Cathedral Cities of Salisbury and Winchester.
