Watering down

£8 million mansion with the only Cotswold drawn spring water comes to the market

 

They say: “Where there’s a well, there’s water” and whoever is prepared to part with some £8,000,000 could get an awful lot of that if they bought Alderley House at Alderley, near Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire.

Alderley House was used as a school before reverting to a private residence in 2009

Standing on a plot of 26 acres, Grade II listed Alderley House is described by its selling agents Knight Frank as “the perfect country house”. The 19th century Lewis Vullimay designed mansion includes only around 24,000 square foot of accommodation, but also benefits from a sports hall, swimming pool, tennis court, floodlit riding school and practice polo ground.

 

If Only Fools and Horses’ Del Boy had won the £150 million EuroMillion jackpot last Friday and chose to splash out on Alderley House he could achieve what he failed to do with Peckham Spring Water as in 2010, a water diviner discovered natural spring water in the walled garden of the estate. In the time since, it has been bottled and marketed as Alderley Cotswold Natural Spring Water – the only Cotswold drawn bottled spring water on the market. It is described as being “high in calcium, low in sodium” on the website marketing it.

The equipment used to bottle the water is excluded from the sale price but is “available by separate negotiation” according to Knight Frank’s brochure. No money back, no guarantee.

      You property insights are always interesting….how about inviting someone to dwell upon the iniquities of the proposed mansion tax. The leader of K&C , Nick Paget-Brown wrote an excellent letter to the vile Balls setting out, by case study, the financial hurt it would cause to long established K&C residents income poor.
