Pe­ga­susLife breathes new life into the his­toric Kent man­sion

The Wilder­nesse Es­tate is home to 400 years of rich his­tory, from the an­cient Span­ish chest­nut tree planted in its grounds to cel­e­brate Henry VIII’s first mar­riage, to its spell as a field hos­pi­tal dur­ing both World Wars and more re­cently as the much-loved Dor­ton House, head­quar­ters and school of the Royal Lon­don So­ci­ety of the Blind.

Now en­ter­ing its next chap­ter, it has been trans­formed into a col­lec­tion of 23 one- and two-bed­room apart­ments and eight newly built mews houses, ex­clu­sively for peo­ple over 60.

Pe­ga­susLife has worked with restora­tion ex­perts Pur­cell to breathe new life into the main house and its many pe­riod fea­tures, and with ar­chi­tects Mor­ris & Co, who de­signed the mod­ern mews houses and on-site restau­rant.

Tai­lored by Pe­ga­susLife to meet the needs of the mod­ern, ac­tive and so­cial re­tiree, the de­vel­op­ment fea­tures a gym and stretch stu­dio, a lux­u­ri­ous spa, ther­a­peu­tic treat­ment rooms, as well as ex­ten­sive land­scaped gar­dens. You can dine with friends in the restau­rant, en­joy a game of cro­quet on the lawn or share a gin and tonic in the grand com­mu­nal lounge with friends.

Apart­ment prices start from £959,500, mews houses start from £655,500.
