A Derelict Doer-Upper

Derelict 18th century Oxfordshire mansion with 125 acres of land for sale for £10 million

 

A 125-acre Oxfordshire estate with Humphrey Repton landscaped grounds has gone on sale for £10 million ($13.2 million, €11.3 million or درهم48.7 million) in spite of being described as being “in poor order.”

 

The Coombe Park Estate at Whitchurch-on-Thames is situated at the end of a ¾ of a mile long private drive just 49 miles from Central London. Constructed in 1865, the original mansion was later demolished and what now remains consists of a 13,368 square foot house created from the original servants’ quarters, a coach house and an extension built in 1982.

 

Featuring 4 main reception rooms, an indoor swimming pool, 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, Coombe Park itself “has been unoccupied a number of years” but now presents an opportunity for a buyer to unleash its “enormous potential” according to selling agents Strutt & Parker.

 

In addition to the main residence, there are three additional houses, an orangery, a coach house, offices, a sports pavilion, an indoor tennis court, stabling and a boat house included in the sale.

 

According to a blog from 2008, the estate – which was used by the American military as a rest and recuperation ‘flak house’ during the Second World War – has been in the ownership of an individual from Rotterdam since 1982. He is described as having now “sadly lost his fortune.”

  1. I love it. If only I had £10 million. I’d fix it up and make it into a wonderful family home once again. That boat house is so Wind in the Willows. Where’s Ratty?

  2. As a property professional, my advice is bid quickly if you have the funds. This will be very popular with the international elite given its great location and strong bones. I see huge potential for uplift in value and the creation of a £50 million plus estate here.

    • Yolanda, my idea of total misery would be looking for a PCLP and finding you deputed to drive me around and being forced to listen your tedious and smug drivel

  3. Wrecking ball required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF???????????? What a dump —- not even a proper house!!!!!!!!! Who wants to live in a f***ing former stable and servant flop house!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 million quid for this s*****!!!!!!!!!! What a joke!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!! Dirty filthy hovel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I have known the house for 40+ years and there is a little drawback – it’s approached through a council estate. Nice people live there but those with £10,000,000 want a little exclusivity.
