For sale: the ultimate luxury country house

Do you have £12m spare?

Ladies and gentlemen. We’ve featured some stunning luxury houses in KBB Ark over the years. Everything from cliffside marvels to fairy-tale cottages and hobbit holes. But we might have finally found it, the most luxurious home on the market. Kingsmead Manor is for sale in the beautiful sleepy town of Farnham, in Surrey. With no further ado, let’s dive into the details.

The house has eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms and eight living rooms. The ground and first floors all have under-floor heating installed. When you combine this with the multiple fireplaces dotted throughout the house, you’ll be snug as a bug here through the winter. Heck knows you’ll need some help with the upkeep of the place. So, as well as massive garages, there is staff accommodation and an office already built as well.

Why choose between indoor and outdoor swimming pools? Kingsmead has both. The indoor pool is set in a stunning rustic barn-style hall, and the outdoor pool looks out onto the Surrey countryside. Behind it sits a pool house, steam room and sauna.

Even if outdoor pursuits are more your thing, it’s no problem. The property also encompasses stables, a wildflower meadow, apple orchard, formal lawns, woodland and tennis courts. If you’re wondering how it all fits in, thankfully it’s a 32 acre plot.

Yes, protecting all this luxury is a concern. Don’t worry there either, you’re covered. The property has a gated entry phone system, extensive CCTV, an in-built security system and intruder alarms. Of course, all this doesn’t come cheap. The guide price for the property current sits at £12m. Ouch.
