A luxurious country estate located in southwest England is available for sale for an amount of £4.95 million ($6.7 million). What makes the estate interesting is that the owners could get a royal visit at a short notice.
The estate, known as Brimptsmead, is a six-bedroom Edwardian family home. It is spread across 9.22 acres of land in Dartmoor National Park. It has paddocks, woodland and a bank of the River Dart where one can fish. All confirmed by real estate company Knight Frank.
The current owners had bought the property from Prince Charles some 27 years back. During the sale, he retained the right to fish on the estate's riverbank. However, it is to be noted that in order to fish, a 24-hour notice is to be given, CNN reported.
The real estate company said that even though the 'Prince Charles dropping by' incident did not occur with the current owner, he can very well drop by for fishing if he feels like it.
So till it happens, the new owners will be able to enjoy the six-bedroom main residence. The resident is built from pink granite and features turrets topped with 26,000 red clay tiles. It has two cottages, as well.
Brimpstead was completed in 1906. It has already been visited by Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, a spokesperson for Knight Frank said.
Since the estate is surrounded by a national park and is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, the listing is described as a "very unusual opportunity in the area."
As far as the Duchy of Cornwall is concerned, it is a private estate, belonging to the Duke of Cornwall, the eldest surviving son of the British monarch and therefore heir to the throne.
Duke of Cornwall or Prince Charles is the longest-serving Duke since the duchy was created in 1337. This estate's revenue is used to fund the Duke and his children's activities.
