Built in 2006, Asprey House was one of the first builds by Octagon Developments, which operates mostly outside of London and is known for building stately homes of £10 million (US$13.46 million) to £20 million.
The sellers of the home are the award-winning composers Tony and Gaynor Sadler, who have worked with many big names including the British Broadcasting Corp. and automaker BMW, Mr. Madden said. The home contains a music studio that the Sadlers have worked from for years and could be kept as a studio or transformed into a media room.
The well-proportioned family home is split over three floors and boasts very generous living space, with an additional living room on the ground floor. The property is flooded with natural light, while its nearly half-acre garden is accessible from multiple rooms via French double doors.
The beautiful rear garden is suited for summer hosting, benefitting from mature trees that enclose the garden space, providing privacy and atmosphere.
The 5,159-square-foot home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, spread over three floors.
The property boasts substantial outdoor space of nearly half an acre, a home office and a state-of-the-art music studio, as well as a second living room.
There is also generous off-street parking with a double car garage and plenty of storage space.
Asprey House occupies a corner plot on Devenish Lane, a quiet and private road accessible only to residents, and home to many impressive properties, investment bankers and CEOs, Mr. Madden said.
The affluent residential area is local to the village of Sunningdale, in the southeast corner of Berkshire within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Sunningdale has a charming town center and a train station on the Waterloo to Reading Line, with London city center accessible by train in under an hour.
Ideal for golfing enthusiasts, the area is home to both Sunningdale and Wentworth golf clubs, while it lies just a five to 10 minute drive from the larger town of Ascot, as well as the Ascot Racecourse.
Asprey House provides a great catchment area for leading schools such as Eton College, Wellington College, St. Mary’s School, and private prep schools including Sunningdale School, St. John’s Beaumont, Bishopsgate School, and St. George’s Windsor.
