A house estimated to be around 750 years old has been put up for sale in the UK. The land on which it stands was granted by William the Conqueror.
The house, which has four bedrooms, is included on the list, which is the equivalent of the Polish list of class 0 monuments. It is assumed that the approximately 750-year-old house is the oldest residential building in Great Britain. It has just been put up for sale. The price is 1.5 million pounds, or PLN 7.2 million.
The house, located in the Dorset countryside in the south of England, belonged to the Clavile family for over 700 years. In the 13th century it was given to Sir Walter Clavile by William the Conqueror. The estate also includes the surrounding areas with historic buildings, such as a barn and a stable from the 16th century. It was during this period that the property underwent a thorough renovation, while retaining its original character. In the estate you can see Elizabethan vaults, stone floors, spiral staircases typical of medieval architecture, and a stone fireplace dating back to the 14th century.
– The property will appeal to those who like historic buildings. An added bonus is that it is located just a few miles from the sea, in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Therefore, it may be attractive as a second home for relaxation. – says Luke Pender-Cudlip from Knight Frank – the agency entrusted with the sale of the estate.
The historic house has almost 300 square meters of living space, which includes a hall, waiting room, dining room, kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The estate also has a garden, a fruit orchard, a vegetable garden and a horse paddock.
