The big house

I wrote this piece – about Britain’s biggest private house – for the May issue of Tatler, but got talking to a friend yesterday about how it was still for sale. Unbelievable, really, when it’s only £8m and needs another £40m or so to tart it up. Which still makes it cheaper than most London flats AND way bigger. Anyway, the article’s below and click HERE for the Savills link if you’re a Russian oligarch with a few spare coins rattling about in your pocket. There is an excellent book on the house’s history called Black Diamonds if you’re even more interested. Rumour has it there’s also a TV costume drama about it in the offing…
