The Rushmore Hill Estate is uniquely situated in a rural position within the M25. Surrounded by the rolling countryside of north Kent and within easy reach of the pretty village of Knockholt, Rushmore is a countryside haven just 18 miles from central London.
The estate extends to approximately 466 acres and is principally aligned along a deep and very private valley, which has previously formed the focal point of a first class shoot.
Rushmore House itself is a substantial country residence attractively built in brick and flint, set within large and secluded grounds. Wrought iron electric gates lead to the house which is approached by a long drive. The Gate Cottage sits immediately adjacent and there is a range of garages to the side.
The accommodation is extensive and newly refurbished. An entrance hall with glazed roof and marble floor leads to a reception hall with a sweeping mahogany staircase. The drawing room has access onto the veranda and rear lawns through two French doors and the dining room has a vaulted ceiling with superb detailed stucco and a large crystal chandelier. A billiard room with a carved marble fireplace leads into the family room and the kitchen has been fitted by Smallbone of Devizes. Upstairs there are five bedrooms all with bathrooms and some with dressing rooms.
Corinthian columns, pilasters and trompe l?oeil illustrations grace the swimming pool complex. The pool has an electric sliding cover and a water jet. French windows lead into the impressive landscaped gardens and grounds. To the rear of the house there is a large terraced veranda with views across the ornamental Carp Lake and a Secret Garden enclosed within brick wall covered with creeping plants. A squash court with viewing gallery can be found in the courtyard as well as a Shooting Lodge, originally designed to house shoot lunches.
A wide variety of farm buildings have been constructed specifically to handle pedigree beef cattle. The estate is framed by beautiful farmland and woodlands, laid out to take full advantage of the valley and significantly add to the sporting and amenity appeal of the Estate.
The guide price for Lot 1, which comprises the main house, cottage and grounds is £3,250,000.
