Pinewood House is a remarkable Grade II listed Jacobean-style mansion dating back to 1880 and offers a perfect collaboration between historical beauty and modern day luxury. It provides extraordinary 360 degree views, with the possibility to enjoy full sunrise and sunset.
It was built for the city financier, Albert Knott during the First World War and sits in more than 3 acres. During the First World War, the property was bought by a shipping magnate, Arnold Trinder. Consequently, the house has a number of maritime features which pay tribute to the period of this ownership. In 1952 it was bought by Bertie Rimmer who divided it in to 3 homes and kept the main part for himself, his wife and 2 sons.
It has been designed with the needs of perfect family life in mind offering sophisticated traditional style with conveniences of modern living including space aplenty for parties and proms.
The residence has been completely renovated in 2012 with respect for the original Jacobean design. It has been updated to now feature high specification facilities and provides a delightful hideaway which sits on 28,501 sq ft.
Nestled in a peaceful place with privacy to enjoy ones success and happiness.
The accommodation is arranged over 4 floors, all accessed via a passenger lift enabling swift access directly from the underground car park all the way up to the magnificent viewing tower on the fourth floor.
The ground floor is dominated by the dramatic, very impressive double height Great Hall with its imposing oak panels and intricately carved wooden pillars, hand carved gallery and remarkable stonework fireplace in the centre of the hall. 24k gold leaf covers the impressive walls and ornate ceiling of the 50ft ballroom, which has French windows opening out on to the garden terrace. The same 24k gold leaf also adorns the walls of the bathroom attached.
The craftsmanship and design specification of this amazing property is second to none.
There is a unique hand-painted ceiling with 24k gold leaf, crafted by the famous Austrian decorator, Peter Stoff, who also restored the interiors of Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Sultan Brunei. There is an Armour wall decorated by gold as an impression of Hampton Court Palace.
