Cliveden Village in Taplow, Berkshire is a new development on the grounds of the National Trust-owned Cliveden Estate, once home to Nancy Astor and probably most famous for hostess Christine Keeler’s poolside frolics with Cabinet Minister John Profumo in the Sixties.

On the site of a derelict hospital that formerly stood in Cliveden’s grounds, Countryside Properties is building 135 new apartments and houses from £410,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, with two to three-bed houses starting at £499,000. Three houses remain in the first building phase, with another 16 apartments and 16 houses being released in the second one.

Residents will be given access to 366-acres of grounds at Cliveden and a National Trust membership will be included in the service charge.

And if you are fretting how to decorate your new home in keeping with its stately surroundings, top design firm Todhunter Earle has been hired to provide ways owners can integrate their antique furniture into a new build home.

Kate Earle, director of Todhunter Earle says, ‘We aim to mirror the beautiful environment of Cliveden Estate by creating light and natural interiors with layered textures and organic fabrics. The Todhunter Earle style is timeless and evokes a “quiet glamour” that is fitting for residents at Cliveden Village.’
