The Buckinghamshire: Multi-Million Pound Renovation Of 17th Century House For ‘Reimagined’ West London Members’ Club

Return to News

One of the UK’s largest and most important clubhouse renovations is on course to be completed this spring when the historic country house at the heart of The Buckinghamshire reopens as the centrepiece of a ‘reimagined’ members’ club for West London.

The multi-million pound project to restore the landmark 17th century mansion situated on an island alongside the River Colne includes the addition of seven new bedrooms, an orangery restaurant, valet parking & locker lounge, work spaces, golf lounge with the latest simulator technology, wine room and whisky room. The interiors have been created by designer Kim Partridge, who oversaw the interior transformation of Ryder Cup venue Adare Manor.

For Sanjay Arora, Chief Operating Officer of the Arora Group, which acquired the property in November 2018, the vision is to create a contemporary upmarket club offering UK and overseas members the opportunity to blend golf, business, hospitality and family time, just 15 miles from Notting Hill and 10 miles from London Heathrow Airport.

Sanjay Arora said, “This is an important first step towards our vision of creating one of the finest clubs in the world. The Buckinghamshire is a diverse, cosmopolitan club for business and pleasure, where members can enjoy the pleasure of being expected and their guests and families can experience first class hospitality, personalised service and relaxed style.”

Having observed Kim Partridge’s outstanding work at Adare Manor, the Arora Group had no hesitation in hiring the award-winning designer to take on the interior design for The Buckinghamshire.

Kim Partridge said, “While we wanted to echo the Englishness of this classic country house, the brief in relation to the club and member experience is avant garde, providing a place where the touchpoints offer understated luxury, where members feel at home and can spend time with friends and family.

“We are also offering members the ability to work from the club, which we’ve been able to do discreetly. We’ve created lots of spaces, tables, connectivity, but also comfort, so you can work from the warmth of a leather wing chair and enjoy all the amenities of a working space.”

Kim Partridge added, “All of these things will make The Buckinghamshire different and put the club at the forefront of the new face of golf.”
