Polly Put The Kettle On

Palladian mansion that was home to Charles Burnett III, the driver of the “fastest kettle in the world,” for sale for £10 million after his death in a helicopter accident

Charles Burnett III (1956 – 2018) lived life to the full. English born, but primarily resident in Houston, Texas, this eccentric member of a family with interests in Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Primark was known for “life of fabulous excess featuring beautiful women, homes all over the world, a vast collection of tanks, planes, speedboats and fast cars – and even a sex dungeon [at his Texan residence].”

 

A nephew of Galen Weston and a man with an allowance reported at £25 million per year, Burnett tragically met his end in a helicopter crash in Raton, New Mexico alongside Roy Bennett, a leading opponent of Robert Mugabe, in January 2018. The only survivor of the crash was his girlfriend of twenty years, Andra Cobb, and now his main home, Newtown Park in the New Forest is for sale for £10 million.

Burnett was known for lavish entertaining and his love of stunts and reenactments.

The scene of “raucous parties” where “mock bombs exploded in the grounds as off-duty soldiers reenacted battles from the Falklands War” in 2007, Newtown Park is described as a “striking Grade II* listed Georgian house at the heart of a 405 acre estate with views over the Solent” by agents Knight Frank.

 

Accommodation, spread over five floors, totals 16,016 and aside from 5 reception rooms, 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, the house has an observatory, wine cellar, CCTV room and strong room. Befitting of a man with a passion for cars – and someone famed for breaking the land speed record for a steam powered car in 2009 – there is “extensive garaging” and also a grass airstrip with its own hangar.

 

Newtown Park is sold with three cottages, an estate office, farm buildings, a tennis court and a swimming pool and as well as formal gardens, there is a walled garden, parkland, arable land and woodland.

  1. He should have had the tanks blow the place up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It looks ridiculous – -especially that carbuncle on the roof!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball urgently required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Destroy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. An amazingly eccentric house and one plainly that was enjoyed by its last owner. May the new ones bring as much joy and naughtiness with them too.

  3. My collegue and I cleared part of this property, and I have to say, What a beautiful, well set property in an idealic countryside. The ‘carbuncle’
    that was described in a previous post, was in my opinion, a spendid feature offering panomramic views of the estate. A very tragic story behind this amazing property!
