Cleaning up

£56 million EuroMillions winners to sell their £4.5 million Cotswolds “eco mansion” – Viewers would do well to not mention cleaners

 

When Justine Laycock and Nigel Page won half of a £113 million EuroMillions jackpot in 2010, they gave their cleaner their £19,000 Honda Civic and allowed her and her husband to move into their £400,000 4-bedroomed house in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The couple purchased a £4 million “eco mansion” in nearby Bibury and now that property is for sale for £4.5 million.

Barnsley Hill Farm totals some 7,417 square foot in total and stands in about 11.5 acres of land. It features 5 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and a leisure suite with a swimming pool, hot tub and spa and is described as having been “designed to be sustainable and energy efficient”.

Selling agents Knight Frank declined to comment as to why Mr and Mrs Page are moving on. The couple were taken to court by a window cleaner, Steve Rix, in October 2014 over an unpaid bill of £375.

    1. John Bercow is one of many self- serving politicians. They all aspire to accumulate a property empire equal to that of Tony and Cherie Blair. We will all have the opportunity in 2015 to assess the situation.

    2. What it is about Speakers. In days of yore they were people of impeccable character and stature. Now they seem a shady lot. Matthew is right to get the Bercows in his sights. The Speaker should be a figure of probity; he should be setting an example to a Commons whose members seem to think that politics is a way of enriching themselves. Not only does this ghastly, tasteless runt get a huge salary, but a pension collectable even after just a couple of years service.
