The Portman Family

A Clean Heart and a Cheerful Spirit

The Portman Estate principally comprises the London estate and the two farms.  The Portman family originated from the west country and purchased an interest in the London estate land in 1532, some 200 years before the beginnings of its development in the Georgian period.  The Estate is now held in trust for the benefit of the wider family, with over 130 beneficiaries.  The ancestral title is held by The Viscount Portman who leads the family’s management of the Estate through the Estate Trustees and the management company, Portman Settled Estates Limited.
On inheriting the title in 1999 Lord Portman became the 10th Viscount and began work on rejuvenating the Estate: working with Trustees, appointing its first Chief Executive and forming the Board of Directors.  Lord Portman plays a proactive role across the Estate and is the Chairman of the Board.

Since then the Estate has moved from strength to strength.  The Estate actively manages its property assets both directly as landlord to a growing number of residential and commercial customers, and through its relationships with its long term lease holders.  Its aim is to be at the forefront of property management and place making in London; taking forward a contemporary estate within an historic context.
