STANDING at £5.75million, it may well be the most expensive house on the market in North Somerset at the moment.
If you won last night’s National Lottery and are wondering how to spend your winnings the Meeting House Estate in Wrington may be right up your street or exclusive driveway.
The word luxurious is often overused when describing properties for sale but there is no doubt the six-bedroom mansion merits such a description.
The large pricetag means you expect plenty for your money and the Long Lane estate does not disappoint on that front.
You get a five-bedroom manor house with an adjoining one-bedroom annexe. Its numerous reception rooms also include a snooker room should you feel like wanting to replicate the Crucible atmosphere at home.
But should the manor house feel a bit too cramped, the four-bedroom farmhouse, two cottages, commercial farm buildings and the 418-acre arable land site, ought to give you enough room to branch out.
Despite the recession the estate has proven popular according to Strutt & Parker estate agents.
Sarah Macdonald-Smith, who is overseeing the sale, said: “We are conducting a number of viewings this week and people are always interested in anything like this as it is a prestigious estate with beautiful views of the valleys.”
She said the estate’s close proximity to Bristol make it more attractive to potential buyers.
The old-fashioned stony exterior makes the manor house look like it has been a fixture in the village for centuries, but it was only built in the late-1980s.
She said: “It means it has all the benefits of a newer house but the looks and charm of an older one.”
If the £5.75million price tag is a little bit out of your price range then fear not. If you are willing to sacrifice 50 acres of land, the adjoining woodland and Barley Farm then you can buy it for just £4.25million.
If you don’t buy a lottery ticket normally, you might want to this weekend.
