Townends in Sunbury are marketing a two double bedroom, split level apartment within Tudor Court, Castle Way, Hanworth Park in Middlesex.

Tudor Court, which is currently on the market for £350,000, is a Grade II listed building overlooking an ancient communal courtyard which was once part of Henry VIII’s hunting estate.

Described as one of the most interesting buildings within the conservation area, the early medieval character of Tudor Court is still evident with deep red-brown bricks and original period features.

The apartment has undertaken extensive refurbishment to include a new bathroom and Shaker style kitchen/dining room. It also has a large open fire in the lounge, original maple wood floors, four Victorian stained glass windows and off street parking. The property is set in over an acre of landscaped gardens which has the original well and portcullis gateway. The communal grounds also feature the original walled orchard and moat.

The site of Hanworth House and Park was a royal residence of Henry VIII who used it as a hunting lodge whilst hunting on Hounslow Heath. In 1532 Henry VIII bestowed Hanworth House on Anne Boleyn but after she was executed in 1536 the house reverted back to the king. The estate was passed through various royal connections including Queen Catherine Parr and Queen Mary, but it was not until 1627 that the freehold was relinquished and the house ceased being a royal residence.

The new owner Lord Cottington largely rebuilt the house with stables and various garden houses and walls, but in 1797 the house was destroyed by a fire and a subsequent house was built in a different location. During the First World War ‘The Court’ was used as a hospital and in the mid 1920’s converted into apartments which still stand today. The surrounding high brick walling together with the remains of the Tudor Palace as well as the grounds themselves and the ornaments in the 16th Century gardens survive.

The property has a secluded country setting adjacent to Hanworth Park and is next door to St. Georges Church, a local landmark. It also benefits from excellent travel links with London Heathrow Terminal 5 only a few miles away, easy access to the A316, M3 & M25 motorways, and in close proximity to Feltham mainline station which runs direct trains to London Waterloo in approximately 25 minutes.
