Steph and Dom originally bought it for £2.6million back in 2004.

Speaking to Richard Eden for the Daily Mail, Dom said of the property: "We just fell in love with the place. It was like finding gold in a river. We just thought, 'Oh my God. We must have it.'"

Steph and Dom left Gogglebox back in 2016 and currently live in their holiday home in Spain's Canary Islands.

Of the decision to sell, he added: "Our lives have changed and moved on considerably and we are not in a position to move permanently back to Sandwich."

The Parker's now-former residence consisted of 17 bedrooms in total, split over a few different buildings, and it was designed and built by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1912.

It also had a 60-capacity restaurant on-site, where the couple used to serve up the finest fare.

The exterior of the property is on par with its stunning interiors, as there is 3.7acres of land and some of the gardens won Gold at the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show!
