An Englishman’s home is his castle and in the case of Whithurst Park this has been true but for one exception, the house of entrepreneur Richard Taylor and designer Rick Englert has been an Anglo American project from the beginning.
Building in the English countryside is never easy, obtaining planning permission is always a hurdle to overcome. It all began in 1999 when 100 acres of park and woodland was purchased to realise this most ambitious of projects which continues today. The site in Sussex is dramatic and inspirational. The entire estate is a place of work, a place of relaxation and a place of dreams.
The West Sussex/Surrey border is an idyllic setting. There are one hundred acres of beautiful land, comprising woodlands, meadows and gardens. At its centre is the main house to the estate which is reached by a rolling drive stretching from the modern lodge house through carefully managed meadows and mature trees.
The main house has 4 bedrooms and a staff flat. It may look authentically old and is full of surprises. The owners have installed an eco friendly closed-loop water source Heat exchange system, whose loops of submerged pipe extract heat energy from the mearby lake and through amplification and compression, supply hot water to the radiators, underfloor heating, sinks, baths and showers as well as the indoor swimming pool.
