The historic property has a whopping £6million price tag and it has had an interesting past as it was once dramatically burgled but the thieves were forced to leave their loot in the lake when their getaway car broke down.

The buried treasure was then lost for 150 years before new owners discovered the silverware at the bottom of the water!

The Oliver's country property has ten bathrooms, two drawing rooms and a great hall, while the grounds also boast another six-bedroom 16th-century farmhouse, three-bedroom lodge and converted stables.
