Live Like King Edward VII at Rangemore Hall
The luxe Edward VII Wing at Rangemore Hall (above) in Burton-upon-Trent, England, has been listed for sale at £2.5 million or about $3.8 million, the London Daily Mail reports. Built for the Bass family of brewing fame, Rangemore Hall's owner Lord Burton constructed the wing for a visit from King Edward VII, known as "Dirty Bertie", and his bride Queen Alexandra in 1907. At 12,000-sq.-ft. it is far larger than the Hall itself, and includes a one-bedroom flat attached to the wing by a hidden staircase used to accommodate Edward's mistress Lillie Langtry. The wing features its own ballroom, seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, three reception rooms, a study and a strong room used to house the royals' family's crown jewels. Successive owners have renovated it to include a leisure complex completed in a Romanesque style and a heated swimming pool and jacuzzi. The wing overlooks 10 acres of parkland including two private lakes, a topiary garden with an in-set water feature, four-car garage and electronic gated private driveway.
