Controversially sold to Rivercrest Developments for £1.85 million in 2006 (the equivalent of £2.4 million, $2.9 million, €2.7 million or درهم10.7 million today) after being offered for £2.5 million in 2005, what is now being turned a “super estate” by its selling agents is currently for sale for £15 million ($18.3 million, €17.2 million or درهم67.1 million).

Previously run as a conference centre and hotel and owned by the Quaker Trust for 400 years, Grade II listed Old Jordans at Jordans, near Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire now provides a total of 14,616 square foot of accommodation and includes a vast basement garage, with a car lift, which can accommodate 25 vehicles.

 

Standing in some 6 acres of landscaped grounds, Old Jordans served as a hiding place for Quakers – including the founder and first Governor of Pennsylvania William Penn – from Oliver Cromwell and was subsequently used as a training centre for the Friends’ Ambulance Unit in the First World War. Dating back to around 1624, the redevelopment of the property has created a 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom house that mixes both old and new along with two 2 bedroom apartments.

 

Somewhat soulless in terms of its décor and situated right next to the road, this pricey country property has been for sale since the summer of 2016. It comes complete with a barn named “The Mayflower” that allegedly was made with leftover timbers from the construction of the Pilgrims’ historic vessel and is offered by Knight Frank.

  1. The modern bits are a real improvement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fireplace in the dining room, however, needs replacing as it is far too old fashioned!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Gosh, the building might be Grade ll listed and so they couldn’t change the outside but they’ve managed to use a wrecking ball, what made me think of that phrase, to destroy the interior. The whole inside doesn’t resonate with the exterior at all. The building is 1624 AD but the interior decor is 16.24pm. Yuk.

  3. Not sure how these so called renovators get the planning permission to destroy a fantastic building like this. They obviously have so much money, they plough on regardless, and just budget the fines into the overall cost of the reno. We just had a case here in Australia where a construction company destroyed a heritage listed pub, even though they didn’t have planning permission to do so. They ended up getting a $100000 fine, a mear pee in the ocean when the development, when complete was expected to fetch the developers around $50 mill.
