A Magnificent Mammoth Mansion

Grade I listed Jacobean prodigy house in Hampshire for sale for £10 million; it allegedly is haunted by 14 ghosts and comes with planning permission to create a mammoth 57,000 square foot single residential home

 

In April 2017, The Steeple Times featured the sale of a vast New Jersey mansion named Darlington. Offered for the sum of £37 million, that property remains for sale but now the English  Jacobean prodigy house on which it was modelled has also been placed on the market.

Bramshill was used as a police college from the 1950s until 2013 (the entrance pictured here is no longer included with the ownership of the main house)

 

Used as a police college from the 1950s until 2013, Bramshill House, near Hook has permission to be returned to a single family residence with a colossal total size of 56,974 square feet. Described as “one of England’s great stately homes,” the proposed accommodation that could be created – after a supposed additional expenditure of £10 million on refurbishments on top of the £10 million asking price – would include 10 reception rooms and 10 bedrooms. Additionally, there would be a 126-foot long gallery, a cinema, gym, a wine cellar, a disco and even a chapel.

 

Bramshill was built in the early 17th century by Baron Edward la Zouche (1556 – 1625), famed for his lone vote against the condemnation of Mary Queen of Scots, and is described as being of the Italian Renaissance style. It was later occupied by the 2nd Baron Brocket and the exiled King Michael and Queen Anne of Romania before being acquired by the British government in 1953.

 

Sold in 2014 to property developers City & Country in 2014, the estate – then totaling some 262 acres – was sub-divided and now Knight Frank are the agents for the mansion and 92 acres of Grade I registered parkland.

  1. The adjoining housing development will be considered a security risk I’d say to anyone capable of spending £20 million on this house. It is a beautiful building but just like the American version, who’d want plebs at the bottom of the garden?

  2. What a dump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball urgently required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So ugly and old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Full of rats and damp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. English Heritage and the National Trust should step in. This house should be saved for the nation — and they could do ghost tours.

  4. It is a great pity that so much of the original land has been separated. It will greatly detract from the value.

  5. Sir Benjamin Slade should buy it and fill it with his “breeder” women. I can’t think of anyone else who’d need 57,000 square Feet!

  6. Did Lord Brocket bury any cars in the garden? If so, it is worth buying as any Ferraris that are found could be worth more than the asking price.

  7. This is a tricky one. The house is beautiful and the square footage vast but the downside is the developer is now simply trying to offload a white elephant he had to buy in order to profit from the other developments on the remainder of the site. A buyer of this is not going to be motivated by profit and that truly limits who can purchase. This could sit around for years — unless someone with very deep pockets comes along.

  8. This marvelous house filled with history (including the ghosts..an added attraction) deserves and demands to be preserved for future generations !! I do not think this was the present Lord Brocket house !!

  9. Sir Thomas Foxley (c. 1305 – 1360) was MP for Berkshire several times in the 14th century, and Constable of Windsor Castle, also in the English county of Berkshire, from 1328 to his death.

    His father, Sir John Foxley (c. 1270 – c. 1325) was a Baron of the Exchequer who held lands in Bray, Berkshire. His mother, Constance de Bramshill (d. 1333), may have been the heiress of the De Bramshill family from Bramshill in Hampshire. Thomas was probably born in Bray.

    He became MP for Berkshire in 1325, and was appointed constable of Windsor Castle in 1328, soon after the accession of the 14-year-old Edward III. He retained the office until his death. He was responsible for rebuilding the castle for Edward III.

    Foxley was also the builder of a castle at Bramshill that became the core of the later Bramshill House.

  10. Bramshill mansion is an amaizing place, so much history full of romance and tragedy. It has so much to offer. It should b open to the public with all the story’s and history told. I would also be very proud of this place if my ancestors had any part of its history. I would love to spend time here with a medium to learn more about the ppl once lived here and the house itself. The ‘green ‘ room has a sad story reflecting what I can only describe as mantle health and cover up. I was given a short tour when it was the police collage. It’s part if British heritage and should be looked after and saved as it once was.

  11. Hi can anyone tell me what else is happening at Bramshill and also the Pheasantry as I have a mate who knows someone who works there but won’t say what they do is there a secret retreat up there that commands domestic staff
