A 28-Bedroom Mansion In Devon Costs The Same As A 17ft Garage In London
This is what £500,000 buys you in North Devon.
Moreton House, near Bideford, is a 34,250-sq-ft Grade II-listed building boasting 28 bedrooms.
The three-storey residence also has 19 reception rooms, eight bathrooms, and a ballroom, obviously.
Estate agency Jackson-Stops & Staff says the building was previously used as a boarding school.
Land and new home director James Gibbs said the property was on the market for just £500,000 because of its size.
“It is priced like this because it is so large. If it was a tenth of the size it would probably still be the same price so you’re basically getting 90% free."
“It could be a school, a hotel, converted into apartments or be used as a single home for someone with a lot of furniture.”
For your half a million, you also get five acres of land.
Meanwhile, in London, this is what £500,000 buys you. A garage.
The garage is on Canning Mews, west of Palace Gate in Kensington.
It is described as “substantial and secure” and stretches back over 17ft.
