The Phillipines
 
  The Phillipines, Sevenoaks, Kent

This Grade 2 listed 'Victorian Italianate' Mansion in 40 acres of parkland and landscaped gardens is in the heart of The Kent Downs area of outstanding natural beauty. It was built in 1834 and commands views in excess of ten miles.

In the early 1900s a pupil of Charles Rennie Mackintosh redecorated the great hall and morning room in the 'Arts and Crafts' genre. The Phillipines continued as a family home until after the Second World War. It is currently used as a care home.

Sabre has obtained permission to create a high quality, secure, gated settlement and remove all the later additions and dormitory buildings whilst restoring the landscaped gardens and parkland. The mansion is to be divided into eight apartments and the courtyard will provide five cottages. In the park, eight exceptional houses of substance will be constructed and the whole development will set a benchmark for those who aspire to the highest quality of life.

The completed scheme will total approximately 70,000 sq. ft.
