Rumours about top Tory stalking donkey Adam Afriyie’s financial situation abound – he is flogging his massive 9 bedroom Westminster townhouse for £16.25 million, a cool profit of £9 million. Having said earlier in 2015 “You can’t expect an MP to scrabble around on a salary of £67,000.”
Now Afriyie has put his palatial 17th century Windsor home on the market for £4.85 million. Purchased in 2008 for £4 million, the eight bedroom house comes with five bathrooms, five reception rooms, and five and a half acres of land. The former monastery contains several period features, including an ornately decorated octagonal music room:
In addition to two cellars, the property has several spacious suites used to entertain guests:
The grounds include a tree lined drive, a “secret garden”, a pool, a chalet style studio, a sauna, tennis court and even a croquet lawn and rose Pergola:
The buyer will also enjoy a four door Aga – as well as a Siemens dishwasher, Neff electric hob with combination oven under and an American-style Amana fridge. The listing states that “Good local schools are numerous and include Eton College”.
