Park Place





Formerly home of Frederick, Prince of Wales during the mid 1700s, this Franco-Italianate styled home had fallen into disrepair. SPINK undertook the design, landscape design and build to return the house to a trophy country estate. On completion, Park Place was the UK’s most expensive home. The restoration approach was historically based and we reinstated the former layout of the main house. The semi-derelict grotto was replaced by a contemporary spa crafted in Vals stone from Switzerland. The 250 acre estate is Grade II listed with a series of restored Grade II* monuments and landscape features. Its II* listed 18th century chalk amphitheatre and II* boulder bridge both lead down to a Thames riverside restored boathouse.
