According to CNN, a fabulous country estate previously owned by Prince Charles has just been marketed for Â£ 4.95million ($ 6.7million). The six-bedroom property, known as the Brimpstmead Estate, is located in the South West of England and covers 9.22 acres of land in Dartmoor National Park. As a result, the enclosures, scenic woods, and even the River Dart can be found in the backyard of the house.
Fishing rights are included, however, any potential owner should note that Charles himself retains “the right to fish on the river bank of the property as long as 24 hours notice is given”, under the terms of the initial sale. The current owners of Brimpstmead bought the property from the Prince of Wales about 27 years ago. And, while he hasn’t passed in the meantime, there’s still a possibility he may. Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle is said to have visited the property at one point, although it’s not clear if he came to fish or just hang out.
Described by listing agents as a “very unusual opportunity in the region”, the estate has a main residence alongside two separate cottages, with all the superb amenities you would expect from a former royal residence. Brimpstmead’s bond with Charles runs deep as Dartmoor National Park is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, the current private estate of the Duke of Cornwall, whose funds are allocated to the various activities of Charles and his children.
