Built in 1875, it was owned by the same family for 120 years and has hosted royalty. Princess Margaret visited friends there in 1987 and there’s is now a commemorative plaque in the hall.

Its latest owner is well known in boxing circles. Mike Esa, who bought the house in 2003 is a former international boxer who now runs Esa Live, a live events company.

He and his wife, Caroline, have invested heavily in making the property a beautiful family home.

The house has 11 acres, five reception rooms, large living kitchen leading to an outdoor entertaining area, along with six bedrooms and six bathrooms, including a self-contained apartment.

Mike and Caroline are selling as their children are now grown-up.

“It’s an amazing home and we have loved living here. We will miss it but it’s time to let another family enjoy the house,” says Mike.

The gym in the barn conversion reflects Mike's love of boxing.
