Since the early 1900s, the leafy hamlet of St. George’s Hill in Weybridge, Surrey, has been the discreet, away-from-the-city haven for the UK's rich and famous. Set on over 900 gated-and-secured acres, the exclusive area has been home to the likes of John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Tom Jones and Kate Winslet – it's no wonder that St. George’s Hill is often dubbed the Beverly Hills of Britain.
Now one of this area's mansions has come on to the market, offering a glimpse of what these luxe homes have on offer.

This St. George’s Hill mansion is one of the grandest and priciest properties yet. The newly-completed 14,300-square-foot, red brick, Georgian-style spread is on the market for £14.5 million (opens in new tab). The interiors were designed by design studio Alexander James Interiors (opens in new tab).
The luxurious property has six bedroom suites with their own dressing room, plus a bar, wine room and a cinema room – but its most spectacular feature has to be its huge, 6,000 square foot lower ground floor housing an extensive leisure complex.
The property is called Grosvenor House, aptly named after the iconic five-star hotel in London’s Mayfair; Take the lift down to the basement and you’ll find the kind of facilities you’d expect at the plush Grosvenor House hotel.
