Octagon Sells Totteridge Super Home in Record Time


Octagon report that they have successfully sold Cavendish House, one of their landmark super homes on Totteridge Common, after a short period on the market. The classically designed mansion, which was with joint agents Statons and Knight Frank, had a guide price of £16.8 million, and the sale represents one of the biggest deals to complete outside central London since the beginning of 2016.

The 21,630 sq. ft. Cavendish House sits within 3 acres of landscaped grounds, and from its secluded position boasts 180 degree views of the surrounding countryside.

Inside, the ambassadorial style accommodation is refreshingly family-friendly and includes 8 bedrooms, 7 with en-suites, a separate 2 bedroom staff apartment, indoor swimming pool, spa facilities, gym, cinema, wine cellar, garaging for 6 cars and a separate security lodge at the entry gates to the property.

Nick Staton, Owner of Statons, comments:

“I am very proud that my company has been involved in the sale of Cavendish House, built by Octagon, displaying their acclaimed outstanding design, superb finishes and not least, the setting, which is in the heart of Totteridge village. It is one of the finest homes I have ever had the privilege of selling.”

James Crawford, Partner at Knight Frank, adds:

“It is of no surprise that Cavendish House completed rapidly since its release. It is rare to find a completely private and well positioned country mansion built to such a high specification.

This sale further cements Octagon’s status as the developer of choice for both international and UK buyers. It also demonstrates strong confidence in the market and the enduring appeal of Totteridge, a location that offers a sense of country life yet is still within easy reach of central London.”

With Cavendish House, Octagon showcased its ability to create a truly timeless property, inside and out. The architects and design team sourced materials of the highest quality from around the world to create the home, whilst interior designers Sarah Ward Associates illustrated how both formal entertaining and family living could happily co-exist in such an imposing property. The extensive and undulating grounds were transformed into a spectacular garden by Chelsea award winning landscape architect, Cowley White, with focal point waterfall stepped cascade stealing the show.
