Vacation Property of the Late Princess Diana Listed

Harcourts Luxury Property Selection Lists Vacation Property of the Late Princess Diana

Luxury Property Selection, the elite property brand owned and operated by Harcourts International real estate, has just listed an estate frequented by the late Princess Diana, worth R120 million (over $11.2 million USD) in the area of Upper Constantia in South Africa.

The property known as Tarrystone was owned by Charles Spencer, the 9th Earl Spencer, brother of Princess Diana. It was at the entrance to the estate that he addressed the world media the morning after the tragedy, and issued his controversial condemnation of the role which he believed the press had played in her untimely death.

Set on over two acres, the estate consists of a grand double-storey thatched mansion with three separate guest cottages. The interior of the main house has been redesigned and modernised by the present owner, an internationally accredited decorator.

The living rooms feature double-volume ceilings, French chandeliers, marble floors and four bedroom suites, all with their own dressing rooms and bathrooms.

The three guest cottages boast five bedroom suites between them and each cottage has its own kitchen as well as living and dining area. The suite Princess Diana is said to have favoured on her visits to Tarrystone has been preserved in the style that it was when she stayed.

The property is currently being marketed on an exclusive mandate by Harcourts sales consultant John Phillips. “An incomparable estate of such high quality has never been seen outside of Europe,” Mr Phillips said.

Aimee Williams, International Brand Manager for Harcourts International, said the seller’s confidence in the Luxury Property Selection brand speaks volumes. “To be able to list a property of this caliber with our brand, shows the extent of trust that the vendors have in our team’s abilities to reach a global audience of high-net worth buyers,” said Ms Williams.

“Our team of luxury property specialists are experts in providing a boutique marketing experience whilst utilizing the power of our worldwide network across multiple marketing channels,” Ms Williams continued.

The Luxury Property Selection brand, launched in 2012 is growing rapidly and currently consists of over 5,000 agents operating from more than 800 real estate offices across eight countries.

The brand has also marketed at overseas property showcases, most recently attending the Luxury Properties Showcase in Shanghai with over $175 million of elite properties represented.

“These events ensure that connect with qualified buyers all over the world, and they allow us to grow our database of overseas clients who are interested in locating their perfect premium property,” Ms Williams said.
