Fancy living in a historic mansion with its own helipad and lake?
Upminster’s 17th century Cranham Hall is for sale – but it will set you back a cool £4.25million.
Last bought in 2006, the current family are looking to downsize, with their children having flown the nest.
Found next to All Saints Church and Cooper’s Company and Coborn school, the land was once home to General James Oglethorpe, who founded the 13th and last American colony – now the state of Georgia. He is buried alongside his wife at the parish church next door.
Oglethorpe’s house was demolished shortly after his death and it is not clear how much, if any, of the old house was incorporated in the present building.
Along with its five bedrooms and six living rooms, the hall has a pool complex, which was added in recent years, a bar, sauna and changing rooms, a lake with a nearby jacuzzi and a 5,000 sq ft barn with parking and which includes a two-bedroom staff flat.
The building is being sold through Savills.
