Five utterly outstanding homes for sale, from Cornish beach houses to a huge Chilterns estate, as seen in Country Life

This week’s selection of the best homes for sale through Country Life is great.

Oxfordshire – £9.5m

The Ewelme Estate is for sale, including at its core a Lutyens-style country house set in magnificent gardens overlooking the Chilterns escarpment.

£9.5 million covers “only” the main house and 106 acres – with another £500-plus available for those who can double that budget.

Sold with Knight Frank. See more photos and details for this property.

Bedfordshire – £3.25m

Over 8,000 sq. feet of space in this superb country home, accessed through gates that give you a real sense of coming home, even if you’ve only popped into the shops (or the local pub, which is a short walk away).

Seven bedrooms and seven reception rooms in the main house built at the turn of the 18th century and set on 14 acres of land.

Sold with Michael Graham. See more photos and details for this property.

Cornwall – £5 million

What can we say? There are only four bedrooms, and the home is barely over 2,000 square feet, even with the eaves storage closet. But, as the old saying goes, place, place, place: this is a magnificent house in a perfect location on a plot of land, Greenway, immortalized by John Betjeman.

Sold through Savills. See more photos and details for this property.

Kent – £2.5 million

The estate dates back 1200 years – although the house itself is only a child, about 450 years old – on Charlton Place, just six miles from Canterbury.

There is a surprising amount of history, from its wartime use and the likely visits of Jane Austen to the years it was the home of Dr. Bernardo. There is work to be done, but this is a great place that deserves every penny spent.

Sold by Strutt & Parker. See more photos and details for this property.

Cornwall – £4 million

Exceptional beachfront home on Constantine Bay in north Cornwall, superbly designed and brilliantly thought out inside.

Huge glass walls allow for great views, the beach is just a few minutes’ walk away, and there’s even a Tesla outlet.

Sold by Lillicrape Chilcott. See more photos and details for this property.
