A MANSION with 17 bedrooms could be yours for just £1.5m – the same price as a terraced house in London.

Well Vale Hall in Alford, Lincolnshire, was built in the 18th century and boasts seven reception rooms, 14 basement rooms, a tennis court and six acres of land.

The grade II listed property also comes with a two-bedroom detached coach house AND a three-bedroom detached bungalow.

It even has a separate housekeeper’s apartment and a full garage block.

The red-brick country home sits between two lakes and beautifully landscaped gardens.

It is believed to be one of the earliest examples of a house and parkland designed together.

The property, which has 17,500 sq. ft. of living space, was used by its current owners as a private school until 2008.

It is currently on the market with Fine & Country for just £1.5m.

A four-bedroom terraced house in Clapham, south London, would set you back the same amount.

The Well Vale Hall listing states: “This magnificent grade II listed hall occupies a spectacular setting with exceptional riverside and lakeside views.

“The spacious accommodation dating back to the seventeenth century, extends to some 17,500 sq. ft and includes seven grand reception rooms, seventeen bedrooms, fourteen basement rooms and housekeeper’s apartment.

“The property is further complemented by a wonderful 3,200 sq. ft coach house and three-bedroom detached bungalow.

“Externally the property enjoys formal lawns and paddock land nearing 6 acres (subject to sale) total, tennis court, garage block and enviable views towards St Margaret’s Church.”
