Fancy living like royalty on your very own country estate?

Welcome to Thorpe Hall. Set on a small historical estate extending to approximately 85 acres, you could call this impressive house home – if you have £6 million that is!

Your dreams of living on a grand country estate could come true, as this property's currently on the market. Thorpe Hall is a handsome Grade-II listed country house that has been restored and extensively decorated. The result is an impressive country house where 21st century craftsmanship meets original 18th century standings.

The regal looking house boasts an impressive 12 bedrooms, enough for even the biggest of families.
