Home Goes on the Market for the First Time in 700 Years

Looking for a longstanding property with some history? An estate for sale in Adlington, Cheshire, UK, has its roots in the Saxon era. Adlington Hall was the home to seven generations of Norman Earls until it passed to King Henry III in 1221. Some of that history is gone forever, as the oldest part of the existing house, the Great Hall, was completed in 1505. The house has been expanded, reduced, and remodeled in various phases since then. Adlington Hall has been the private home of the Legh family for hundreds of years. It can be yours for a mere £30 million. 

According to the Savills real estate listing, the property can be bought as a whole or in parts. The main house and 164 acres by itself would run you £12,500,000. That includes five bathrooms and up to ten bedrooms. If the lots are sold separately, the Garden House has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and the Kennel House has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. These folks know how to treat their gardens and dogs. However, priority will be given to buyers interested in purchasing the entire estate.

The Great Hall houses a historic pipe organ and artworks.

If you think that £30 million is a large mortgage, be aware that this property brings in nearly half a million in income every year. While the yard is only 164 acres, the property comprises nearly 2,000 acres, most of which is rented out. The Great Hall and the Hunting Lodge are also rented out for weddings and other events, and the house currently hosts guided tours, which bring in money as well. It will pay for itself in about 65 years! -via Fark
