A Poirot Curve

Curve shaped neo-Georgian house that wouldn’t look out of place in an Agatha Christie Poirot novel on the St. George’s Hill estate in Surrey for sale for an extraordinary sum

Featured as the main article in Country Life just 15 days after the start of the Second World War on 16th September 1939, Hamstone House on the 946-acre St. George’s Hill estate in Weybridge, Surrey was constructed between 1937 and 1938 for Herman Peter Thygesen Lind (1890 – 1956), the founder of a firm that later constructed both Waterloo Bridge and the BT Tower in London.

 

Now offered for £16 million ($18.4 million, €17.2million or درهم67.6 million) by agents Beauchamp Estates, this Grade II listed “classical” house is described on British Listed Buildings as being “in Georgian tradition” and of “brown ham stone ashlar,” but has a look that is more akin to something out of Agatha Christie’s Poirot novels. In 1987, Christopher Warman of The Times, lauded it as “the most important architectural centrepiece of St George’s Hill” and “[looking] like the bridge of a huge ocean going liner.”

 

Accessed via a Grade II listed double gatehouse, Hamstone House is curved in shape and was somewhat mockingly featured in Punch magazine as “[standing] out like the Duchess of Windsor’s flamingo brooch in a local jewellers window.” Its 8 acres of gardens and grounds were listed as “not [looking] out of place in the grandest of crematoria.”

 

Refurbished most recently in 2006, the 23,546 square foot freehold property now includes amongst other things 5 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and an indoor swimming pool. The second floor is dominated by a large roof terrace accessed via an office, from where no doubt Mr Lind no doubt planned many a business manoeuvre as he looked out across what is listed as “rural grandeur.”

 

Sold to a company connected to Oleg Deripaska, the somewhat controversial oligarch and associate of Peter (now Lord) Mandleson in 2001, Hamstone House was previously marketed for £5 million ($5.7 million, €5.4 million or درهم21.2 million) in 1987 according to Wikipedia.

  1. The exterior is spectacular. The interior needs a lot of work to give it back character. Some 1930s furniture and some Lalique and you’d be in business. If only I had £16 million going spare…

  2. Wrecking ball urgently required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would not pay 1.6 cents for this dump!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It looks like a slum dwelling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down —- build something better in steel and glass and enjoy the view!!!!!!!!!! It has the feel of a MENTAL ASYLUM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Destroy, destroy, destroy!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Lovely but very expensive. Are Russian oligarchs still coming? I thought they’d fled and with coronavirus, there’ll be no Chinese for a while.

  4. It is lovely to look at a thing of beauty at this time when the news is so negative and we are all stuck indoors. I love the shape of the building but it would be far too big for little old me (not that I could afford it or manage 8 acres of gardens anyway). Thank you for giving me something cheerful to look at during this scary time.

  5. One has been to this property many of times and those pictures do not do it any justice.

    It has such a grand approach non like any other on St George’s Hill and the grounds are just dam right stunning.

    Most certainly the crown jewel of St George’s Hill.

    • Agreed. I cannot believe anyone would sell such a jewel unless you really needed the wedge. Which I doubt is the case.

  6. Hey guys ,think calmly there is just a house for sale. I ve seen better in Turkey ??. Actually, there is just a little Palace for the Arabs.

  7. Very nice looking exterior and grounds, the interior looks shocking and should be gutted. However, I’m not a real estate pro.

  8. Wowzer! What a stunner! Curvy beauty flanked by soft greenery. I love the pool. Interior is a bit creamy but lovely. Matthew always finds the best properties.

  9. رائع كأساس ولكن من الداخل متخلف جدا راجعت صوره الأولي بالأبيض والأسود كان العقار أفضل
    لو يعود الزمن ل سعره في 2001 وهو 5مليون كنت اشتريته ولكن التضخم لن يجعلنا نحقق حلمنا
