If you are looking for a private house for sale on Wentworth, Virginia Water; it comes no better than Podenhale. Positioned at the very centre of the main island of the Wentworth Estate and set in a completely private plot, down a small lane off Portnall Drive, Podenhale is fitting for those who crave a prime location, privacy, and anonymity. This carefully enlarged and restored Tarrant house wraps around a central courtyard of tranquil gardens and an ornate reflection pool, providing the ideal sheltered environment for al fresco dining and quiet contemplation.
Internally, the main reception hall is a pivotal area and the oldest section of the house. Stone and wood are carefully blended to create an atmosphere of quiet calm. The extensive drawing and dining rooms are presided over by a stunning Tudor gallery encompassing the library and taking full advantage of the vaulted ceiling above the drawing room. From the informal family room, one is drawn into the split-level garden room, a wonderful entertaining area overlooking the courtyard garden complete with bar. To one side of the courtyard is the four bedroom guest or children's wing, each room having its own individual style. To the other side, the first floor encompasses the master bedroom suite and a second bedroom suite.
In addition to the main house, the spectacular old 'chapel' has been modelled as a grand one bedroom suite for visiting guests, and there is a 3 bedroom coach house with garaging for 3 cars, which is ideal for staff / overflow accommodation.
This traditional English mansion also benefits from a swimming pool and tennis court in the mature grounds.
Podenhale is not listed and is within walking distance of the Wentworth Club house, where additional gym and tennis courts can be found.

Windsor Great Park, which extends to 5,000 acres of parkland, is within 0.5 miles. London Heathrow and Farnborough airports are also easily accessible.
