Leave your wellies at the door. This 19th Century farm in rural Staffordshire looks less farm, more Downton Abbey. Sitting in a cool 404 acres of land, The Heath House Estate is palatial in all aspects (with not a stray chicken in sight).
It’s hard to know where to begin with a property of this magnitude. The main house (could we try the world ‘palace’?) is a spectacular Grade II-listed, Tudor Gothic mansion, designed and built by Thomas Johnson of Litchfield. With five reception rooms, 14 bedrooms, two flats and a service wing, you’re certainly not short on space.
The main house boasts tall, ornate ceilings, beautiful fireplaces and large, grand rooms, and is not hard to see why this property is listed due to its historical and architectural importance.

In just under 1 acre of beautiful gardens and a stones throw from the city center, this stunning period property has almost 6,000 sq. ft. (547 sq. meters) of accommodation and a separate 3 bedroom coach house. Considered Edinburgh’s finest private home this highly prized Georgian mansion is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and arguably the very best family home in Edinburgh.
The house is located in the affluent and prestigious Murrayfield area, especially sought after for its close proximity to world-class schools for every age group. This outstanding property dates back to the 1800’s.

Contemporary, prosperous, and rich in history, Edinburgh is undoubtedly the UKs’ second cultural capital and comes with a lifestyle that boasts unrivalled access to urban and country life. Scotland’s highlands are within easy reach of the house, offering majestic and untouched scenery amid lochs and mountains, while air and rail access to the UK and rest of the world is only around a 15-minute drive away.
