Apethorp Hall for sale

Downton Abbey is one of the most successful British television dramas of the year. Fans now have the chance to live out their dreams of the high life in a historic property coming up for sale.
Apethorpe Hall, a British manor with no less than 48 rooms, has gone onto the market for a “bargain” price of 2.5 million pounds . There’s only one problem – it doesn’t have a bathroom.
The Daily Mail reports that the house was originally built between 1470 and 1480 by Sir Guy Wolston, then sold to Sir Walter Mildmay. It reportedly stayed in his family for 350 years. In more recent years, the house has been owned by the Catholic Church and Libyan millionaire Wanis Mohammed Burweila. The new owner of the house , located in Northamptonshire, England, should probably be able to afford to install a few modern amenities. However in common with any historic building, there are bound to be certain restrictions on developing a piece of property first constructed several hundred years ago.
As well as  not having a bathroom, the house comes with a few other catches: an annual £100,000 maintenance bill and a requirement that the hall be open to the public for at least 28 days a year.
The government reportedly spent more than £4 million renovating the house, which had fallen into disarray over the years and was at one time “on the brink of ruin.”
