Also referred to as “John Gays House” and offered to the market by Christie’s Real Estate, this 12,482 square foot “bijou old world residence” stands in 20.75 acres and is predominantly built of red brick elevations with attractive sash fenestration, under a tile roof. It is Grade II listed, dates to the Tudor period and also includes later Queen Anne, Georgian, Victorian and 20th century additions.

 

Less than 30 miles from central London, Gays has been owned by a Swiss family for 20 years according to Country Life and includes 6 reception rooms, a conservatory, a master bedroom suite with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and 2 dressing rooms, 6 further bedrooms and 5 further bathrooms. In addition, the property also comes with a 2-bedroom lodge cottage, a 2-bedroom staff cottage, an indoor swimming pool, wine store and 4-car garage.

 

Aside from a large lawned garden with an irrigation system, a lake adjoins the house and there is also an orchard with apple and pear trees. A stable block, a manège and paddocks stand beyond whilst a 1-kilometre long sand and rubber chip horse exercise track circles it. The Duke of York, it transpires, borrowed these facilities in the late 1990s for his own horses.

  1. Send in the wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It looks like something from Howard’s Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Gorgeous. Alas, I was born with champagne taste and beer money and so I shall make do with drooling at the photographs. A couple of pieces of the furniture belong in the Goodwill Charity Shops (what’s that round four-seated thing in the hallway? They bought it from a hotel? ) but other than that I’m ready to move in next week.
