About John Gays House

John Gays House is a quintessential English country manor complete with formal gardens and superb amenities including an indoor pool and equestrian facilities. The property enjoys an idyllic location on the edge of Holyport, a popular and historic village near Maidenhead, which offers excellent train services to Central London, approximately 28 miles away.

Prominently built of red-brick elevations with attractive sash fenestration, under a tile roof, John Gays House has many historical character features. Its fully updated interior offers a rare combination of exceptional period details and contemporary amenities. A total of eight bedrooms and more than 12,000 square feet of living space, intricate plasterwork, marble floors, large windows, wood paneling, and crystal and brass lighting fixtures lend an atmosphere of country luxury.

At the heart of the house, an impressive galleried entrance hall features grand marble flooring, Brazilian mahogany paneled walls, and ancient oak beams. The neighboring west paneled hall has a sweeping staircase and provides access to elegant reception rooms with ornate cornicing and plaster work, wood-paneled walls, and elegant fireplaces. On the ceiling of the dining room is a beautiful painting and the shutters in the library are of special note. Located between the dining room and the library, the well-proportioned conservatory opens to a courtyard garden with a fountain, while a spectacular indoor swimming pool with a sauna is found at the rear of the property.

Handsome entrance gates open to a gravel drive, which leads through the breathtaking gardens and past a lake to the front of the house with parterre box hedging and a pond with fountains. The estate offers around 20.75 acres composed of expansive lawns, perfectly manicured gardens, a picturesque lake, orchard, and wooded walk. To the south of the property are the fully equipped stables, flood-lit manège, and 1km rubber and sand-chip horse exercising track.
