Jackson Stops estate agents have listed the grand property for sale on their website, for an asking price of £995,000.

It has a wonderful history after it was built around 1720. As well as the Spencer clan, it was owned by the Raynsford family, and also once was a convalescent home for wounded soldiers during the Second World War.
