Grade I listed Sir John Soane designed country house Tyringham Hall reduced in price by 30%
We featured Tyringham Hall, near Newport Pagnell in Buckinghamshire when it was last placed on the market for £18 million ($25.8 million or €22.8 million) in June 2013. It is now being offered for sale again but for a substantially lower sum.
Owned by property developer Anton Bilton and his Brooklyn born wife Lisa Barbuscia (better known as Lisa B.) since they paid £2.5 million (the equivalent of £3.7 million, $5.3 million or €4.7 million today) for it in 2001, the 36,602 square foot isn’t exactly pint-sized and comes with 25 bedrooms and 32 bathrooms. Sadly, only 59.21 acres still form part of the estate and ten separately owned houses stand in close vicinity.
Previously Crispin Holborrow of Savills described the stately home as “right at the top of English homes, an architectural jewel” whilst in contrast Matthew Beckett of the popular blog The Country Seat criticized its architectural styling as featuring an “ill-proportioned copper dome, a tea cosy on a champagne bottle”.
On a more positive note, the eventual buyer of this stately home will get a bonus in the form of a set of vines planted in the former walled garden in 2008. They are described in the 64-page sales brochure for Tyringham Hall as “50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir [whilst] the remaining 5% are Pinot Meunier. [They] will create a very good English sparkling wine”.
