Purplebricks are delighted to offer for sale with no onward chain this beautifully appointed apartment converted in 2016 in this Grade II listed building. With sympathetic conversion and restoration, retaining many architectural features internally and externally, this property dates back to 1589, when the original property was built by Sir Walter Mildmay (founder of Emmanuel College, Cambridge). Just 13 apartments reside within this building, all oozing with period charm but combined with modern touches such as underfloor heating, bespoke kitchens, luxury bathrooms and oak-finished flooring.

This property is approximately 1100sqft and benefits from two car parking spaces plus ample visitors parking. There is further allocated storage in the basement for residents and the property includes a concierge/caretaker. Danbury Palace is set within 8 acres of communal grounds including formal Rose gardens and a tennis court.
