The Grade II listed ‘super estate’ that’s currently for sale through the global estate agent Knight Frank sprawls over six acres, and tastefully blends spectacular contemporary design with its historic character. Owned by the Quaker Trust for over 400 years, it was the resting place of William Penn and acted as a hideout for Quakers evading Oliver Cromwell. There are 15 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, several outbuildings and a swimming pool, to name just a few of this stunning property’s features. It also just so happens that the current owner is an historic car connoisseur, as evidenced by the ex-Works Ferrari 312PB sitting proudly in one of the reception rooms and the fine collection of classics in the garages. Let’s face it – who wouldn’t like to ogle the business end of their 1970s Ferrari prototype while they’re rustling up their dinner?
