R15.4m for nice slice of Lady Chatterley history

Emma Simon

DO YOU fancy owning a property that appears in one of the most scandalous novels of the 20th century?

Teversal Manor in Nottinghamshire was the inspiration for Wragby Hall, the setting for Lady Chatterley’s Lover, DH Lawrence’s famously banned book.

The stone manor house, in Teversal Old Village, is now on the market for £1-million (R15.4-million).

“It certainly is a handsome property, with parts of the manor house dating back to the 16th century,” says Patrick Williamson from Savills, the agency handling the sale.

“Even without its literary heritage it would appeal to buyers, but this connection will no doubt stir additional interest.”

Jonathan Cunliffe, the director of Savills Truro office, has had experience selling homes with both literary and historical connections.

He adds, “We certainly find that the historical aspect of a property has significant appeal.

People love to know they are buying a piece of history as well as just bricks and mortar, so historical connections most definitely add interest as well as value.” © The Daily Telegraph
