19th-century house with further new build homes subject to planning

Ponsbourne Park, surrounded by over 225.3 acres and set in the Ponsbourne Park estate, the 19th-century house offers a blend of classic elegance brought stunningly up-to-date by stylish and creative design.

The Ponsbourne Park house was built in 1876, the home of James W Carlile who leased it to the Roman Catholic Church in 1932 as a Convent School, known as St. Dominic’s. There are still memorials in the grounds to those of the St. Dominican Order, who died whilst living at Ponsbourne.

In 1987 Ponsbourne Estate was bought by Tesco for use as a Hotel and Management Training Centre. The main house, which now boasts superb function facilities, offers tradition and comfort in keeping with the style, yet still offering all modern facilities expected today.

Set in landscaped gardens, Ponsbourne Park has retained many of the original features which have been complemented by later additions, including the bedroom wing, nine hole golf course, gymnasium, outdoor heated swimming pool and five all weather tennis courts..
