Edwardian-Built Tudor-Style Manor For Sale

(Click on the image to see a larger size.)

Hamptworth Lodge Estate is a Tudor-style manor built in Edwardian times (1913—a hundred years ago) by Oxford professor Harold Moffat. It sits on 1,100 acres of New Forest National Park in Wiltshire and is available for sale for 11 million pounds. That comes out to be an expensive 10,000 pounds per acre.

Mr. Moffat, one of the foremost experts in Tudor furniture, tore down the existing Georgian manor on the land to erect this fantastically-detailed edifice. The history of the estate itself can be traced back to at least the 11th century, with various manors built on the site through the centuries.
