New owners for Grade II listed Bulstrode

20 December 2016

Savills, on behalf of WEC International, has sold the Bulstrode Estate in Buckinghamshire to a private buyer from a guide price of £13 million.

Bulstrode is a 106,000 sq ft (9,848 sq m) Grade II listed Victorian mansion set in 38.9 acres (15.7 hectares) of mature grounds and was once home to the infamous “Hanging Judge” Jefferys. The building and estate were the UK headquarters of WEC International, a Christian charity that had been based on the estate since 1967.

Located close to Gerrards Cross, an affluent London commuter town, the property has excellent road links into London and the surrounding areas. The marketing campaign brought strong interest from residential developers, hoteliers and international education groups excited by the proximity and ease of travel to central London.

Gary Witham, director in the hotels team at Savills, commented: “We are pleased to have sold Bulstrode, it is an outstanding example of Victorian architecture within a stunning listed setting. The influence of people who have trained here has been global and the estate has an exciting future under new ownership.”

John Bagg, UK Director of WEC International, comments: “The completion of the sale of Bulstrode represents a deeply strategic and significant moment in the history of WEC International. The sale of Bulstrode was the core element of a wider re-ordering of our work which will enable us to more effectively fulfil our aims and objectives. We now look forward to the unfolding of the next season in our work.”
