While many owners would love to spend all their time swimming in their superyacht pool, sipping cocktails from sea-inspired barware and generally enjoying themselves on board their custom superyachts, sadly some time on dry land is often necessary. However, this does not mean to say your land-based residence should be any less luxurious than your yacht. From beautiful waterfront properties to super high-end urban apartments, we’ve rounded up the residences for sale now that are as luxury as your superyacht.

Former U.S. Ambassador's country estate, Surrey, UK

The English country estate which belonged to U.S. Ambassador John Hay Whitney and his wife Betsy Cushing Roosevelt Whitney for over 30 years has been listed for sale. Set in 4.1 acres of Surrey countryside on the Wentworth Club golf course, the grand Grade II-listed property sports a style typical of the Great British architectural revival and was designed by Oliver Hill for first owner Katherine Hannah Newton in 1930. Restored and modernised extensively during a four-year project which began in 2007, the main residence features spacious bedrooms and staff quarters as well as a basement cinema, study, wine cellar and large entertaining spaces including a vast living room featuring an impressive four-tonne wall created from Onyx Kilimanjaro. During the improvements a new wing was added to house two further guest bedrooms, a double-height reception room, spa and underground swimming pool while a separate pavilion with subterranean access from the main house offers more guest accommodation, a plant room and a garage.

The former U.S. Ambassador's country estate is listed for sale with Christie's International Real Estate through Strutt & Parker with price on application.
