If you’re after a home in London which is next to a golf course, look no further than Laurel Grove. This six-bedroom, 12,000 sq ft house in Coombe, South West London is literally ‘talking distance’ from the third tee of Coombe Hill Golf Course.

This challenging test standard golf course, one of the most prestigious in London, is steeped in history. Dwight D. Eisenhower when Supreme Allied Commander during World War II, Monarchs Edward VIII and George VI, and Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and Lloyd George are all known to have played there. Membership used to require referral from two existing members but the club has recently relaxed the rules.

Created by Q Developments, Laurel Grove features a bespoke LINLEY kitchen; 13m pool with a sauna; gym; cinema room; wine cellar; a large garden; and a separate one-bedroom staff apartment. After a wander upstairs, the full extent of its stunning views become apparent with a landscape that stretches across the golf course towards Richmond Park, the largest of the Capital’s eight Royal Parks, and Wimbledon Common.

Coombe is very much one of London’s hidden gems with its period homes, large detached properties built between the wars and modern mansions concealed behind a network of private roads lined with ancient trees. Natural beauty is all around with Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park, home to the beautiful Isabella Plantation, Pembroke Lodge, and herds of red and fallow deer just short walk. Despite its leafy surroundings, London’s West End is still only eight miles away for a shopping trip or night on the town, while neighbouring Kingston and Wimbledon Village are a short drive for local amenities.

Designed by master architect J F Abercromby, rumour has it that he made use of a hot air balloon to fly over the course and perfect its construction. This magnificent course was built around the same time as Sunningdale and St George’s Heath and is one that any keen golfer should add to their must play list.
