The grade I listed Jacobean mansion, set within Grade I listed parkland, woodland and lake is one of the largest and most important prodigy house mansions in England.

Bramshill House, in Hook, is steeped in royal history as it sits on land previously owned by King Henry VIII.

King James and King Charles I kept state apartments in the home during the early 17th century. Images:Zoopla The mansion was built in the early 17th century by the 11th Baron Zouche of Harringworth and is influenced by Italian Renaissance design.

During the Second World War, the mansion was used as a Red Cross maternity home, before becoming the residence of the exiled King Michael and Queen Anne of Romania for a number of years.

In 1960 the house became the location of the Police Staff College and was later home to the European Police College. Images:Zoopla The Grade I listed parkland, woodland and lake spans across 92 acres and is grazed by on by fallow deer.

It is offered for sale with the benefit of planning consent to restore it to its former glory as a single family residence.
