Wentworth Woodhouse for sale!

Dan Cruickshank (arguably Britain’s finest historian, presenter and writer) described Wentworth Woodhouse as ‘one of the most important and powerful places on earth’ in the late eighteenth century.

When I first read Dan’s The Country House Revealed, which I dug out of the library many years later this morning, I was awestruck by the sheer scale of the place. The east front, pictured above is my all time favourite example of Palladian architecture. Ironically almost too big to take a half decent photo of!

Imagine my surprise this afternoon when I came across the entire 82 acre estate listed for sale via Savills.

Have a look here, it’s real treat!
