Living in Virginia Water

An affluent, rural village; Virginia Water lies in the Borough of Runnymede on the Surrey and Berkshire borders and incorporates the private Wentworth Estate, home of the famous Wentworth Club and its 3 internationally renowned 18 hole golf courses. The estate is home to many of the village’s houses, which are large detached properties and some of the most prestigious within the Home Counties.

The much improved Wentworth Club offers world class facilities with its dining rooms, golf courses, tennis and health club, so the local resident doesn’t need to go very far for the best of everything. There are good local facilities for equestrian enthusiasts including the recently rebuilt Ascot racecourse, polo at Smith’s Lawn in Windsor Great Park and the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. Exceptional, world-renowned schools are located nearby, including Eton College, Sunningdale and St George’s, and the area has excellent shopping centres locally, with Egham just three miles away and Ascot and Windsor less than ten miles away.

Communications are excellent with the M3 and M4 close by, giving fast access to London, whilst the M25 connects with the national motorway network, as well as Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The mainline railway service to London Waterloo takes approximately 45 minutes.

It is these ingredients that make Virginia Water an ideal location for London commuters who still wish to enjoy beautiful countryside.

Property available in Virginia Water

Whether you are looking for a magnificent modern mansion on the Wentworth Estate, a modest family home or an executive apartment on a gated development, Knight Frank can find the property that is right for you.

History

The Wentworth Estate, on which much of Virginia Water is built, takes its name from the Club House, a mock-Gothic nineteenth century country house which was home to the sister of the Duke of Wellington, Lady Anne Wellesley. In the 1850s, Wentworth was owned by the exiled second son of Charles IV of Spain. The present estate, which covers 1750 acres, was created by his widow in 1877. It was eventually sold by Knight Frank at auction in the 1920s and a series of impressive houses were built on the outskirts of the famous golf courses.

Since 1964, the estate has been run by an elected committee of residents, who can ask planning applications to be given to them, before they are submitted to the local authority. The Wentworth Roads Committee is still responsible for the estate’s upkeep and they charge each property owner an annual levy to maintain roads and lighting. The Wentworth golf courses are famous worldwide.
