The estate is “surrounded by its own parkland and woodland and with no roads or public access,” listing agent Mark McAndrew said.

The home is Grade I listed, the rarest of the country’s historic designations, and a declaration it is of “exceptional interest,” according to the British government’s preservation body.

The mansion was enlarged in the 1700s and restored at the end of the 20th century. It has seven bedrooms and retains many of its original details.

The property is available as a whole or in up to eight lots.

The estate is contiguous but wraps other properties and spreads through parts of the surrounding community. Other chunks of the estate include a coach house, farmhouse, several cottages, and equestrian facilities There are also gardens, lakes, and farmland.
