Britain’s most expensive house sold to a Russian for £140 million

A 300-year-old Grade II-listed property in Oxon was snapped up for $230 million (£140m) by an unidentified buyer, making it the most expensive home sold. It includes about 200 acres of the parklands, listed monuments, houses, cottages, stables, and a boathouse. The main house was once owned by Frederick, Prince of Wales and eldest son of George II and had the original huge stone fireplaces and stained glass windows. What makes it quite appealing, though, is that it is also said to be haunted! Apparently, the ghost of Mary Blandy, who was accused of poisoning her father in 1752, might be haunting the grounds. It has also appeared in a film, a remake of St. Trinians.
