An exciting new chapter

Surrounded by acres of rolling Kent countryside, the Wildernesse estate has borne witness to great moments and characters in English history. A chestnut tree planted in 1509 to celebrate Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon can still be seen today, while an avenue of lime trees stands in commemoration of a visit from the Duke of Wellington in 1815. Preserving this rich heritage, Purcell architects have repaired fittings, uncovered original features and protected external stonework to restore the house and its grounds to their former glory.

Today, Wildernesse House is an extraordinary collection of 19 one- and two-bedroom apartments on the upper floors of the main house, 4 one- and two-bedroom ‘legacy’ apartments on the ground floor, and 8 two-bedroom mews houses in the newly built stable block. With dedicated service and a variety of spaces for dining with friends or indulging in a spa treatment, Wildernesse House offers a unique opportunity to be part of the next chapter in the ongoing story of this remarkable estate.
