A stunning conversion of 6 luxurious apartments and houses

Overview

Sondes Place, a striking mansion originally built by Thomas Cubitt in 1850, commands an elevated position overlooking Box Hill and the North Downs.

Until recently, the building was a shadow of its former Georgian glory; over the past three years, Twist Homes have carefully and sympathetically restored Sondes Place with the utmost attention to detail.

The six new remarkable properties – including five apartments and a four-bedroom home located in the West Wing – are designed to appeal to the more discerning homeowner. Those who appreciate outstanding attention to detail and lavish build specification for which the developer, Twist, is renowned.

All of the properties have retained the high ceilings and ubiquitous sense of grandeur derived from the original mansion. They are individual in character, and are all equally served by the reinstated historic features.

Twist has a well-earned reputation for producing beautiful, traditional homes created for modern day living and taste. Each offers a breath-taking environment that combines light and space with contemporary twists that are designed to enhance the pleasure of living in a truly elegant home.
