Alex Samuels, vendor of Cadogan House and Director of Actium Design Limited, comments:
“During the initial design process we decided we wanted to link classical style and contemporary living. In all our projects attention to detail in the design phase is critical. At Cadogan House we spent many months perfecting the layout so that despite their significant size, the rooms would flow naturally and would function both for grand entertaining and family living. From this strong base we drew on the works of the great classical Georgian architects with particular reference to Nicholas Hawksmoor, whose style is evident in the front façade. We spent considerable time working on each elevation to ensure they are all equally handsome and developed the language linking the classical main house to the modern pool house.
In the past ten years of working on super prime property, we have always felt that both the front of house finishes and back of house plant deserve equal thought and planning and this is true at Cadogan House. We are exceptionally proud of Cadogan House, it is both a grand and a family home; classic and contemporary marrying all the features for modern life in one of Europe’s foremost country locations.”
James Cleland, Partner and Regional Head at Knight Frank, says of the sale: ‘The classical architectural style of Cadogan House and the superb attention to detail that has been paid to its design stands the property in very good stead in both the Wentworth Estate and wider country house market. It is exciting and very impressive to see the level of craftsmanship and the quality of the materials that have been brought to this project and the early buyers who have visited the property have echoed these sentiments.’
