The village of Linkenholt, North Hampshire in England currently owned by Herbert Blagrave, is to go on the Market this week with a price tag of somewhere between €17.5 & €22.5 million – (€5 million below the asking price of 3 years ago!)
The 2,000 acre estate comes complete lock stock and barrel with 22 houses and … cottages, a shop, cricket club, pivallion hall and Manor house. Also included in the sale are 40 inhabitants who currently rent the properties in the village, working blacksmiths, commercial shoot and farming land. The only thing not for sale: the local church.
If you have enough airgid in your poca for an entire village which is, might I add, officially designated by Natural England as an area of outstanding natural beauty, your search is over.
