One of the UK’s finest neoclassical mansions, the property was once home to former Prime Minister Arthur Balfour, while past visitors include royals, aristocrats and famous writers from King Edward VII – who planted an oak tree in the grounds – William Gladstone, Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George, to HG Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle.

It boasts an educational history as well as a political pedigree as at one point, it became the Whittingehame Farm School for Jewish refugee children fleeing Nazi Germany for Britain through the Kindertransport rescue programme at the start of World War Two, and later served as Holt School for Boys until it closed in 1980.

Now it offers the tranquillity of a rural home in spectacular surroundings, with the garden flat for sale consisting of separate front door and entrance hall with built-in storage, dining hall, open-plan living room and breakfasting kitchen, utility room, principal bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, guest suite with living area and en-suite shower room, two additional double bedrooms, family bathroom, and private residents’ parking.
