MANSION ON THE MARKET FOR £15M
Headquarters of Christian charity ‘has global appeal’
DO YOU have a spare £15 million? If you do then it is your lucky day, as Bulstrode Park in Gerrards Cross is on sale for £15 million.
The Grade II listed mansion, which is the headquarters of Christian charity WEC International, has been put on the market at its guide price by real estate services provider Savills.
WEC International was founded by the English cricketer Charles T Studd, who played in the original Ashes test.
The charity has owned and occupied the 106,000 square foot Victorian mansion for almost 50 years and it is currently used as their UK headquarters and a training base for future missionaries.
The site is steeped in history and was originally home to the 1st Baron Jeffreys of Wem, widely known as Hanging Judge Jeffreys who was notorious for sentencing convicted people to death by hanging.
Savills stated a number of modern extensions have enhanced the feel of the building, and added that there is potential for a variety of future uses, including residential and assisted living or as an international boarding school, headquarters or training centre.
Sat deep in the green belt, Bulstrode Park is also close to Beaconsfield and Heathrow Airport.
Gary Witham, hotels director at Savills, said: “We expect this significant historic property to have global appeal based on the versatility of its potential uses and its exceptionally well-connected location.”
John Bagg, UK director of WEC International, said: “Realising the value of our headquarters in Bulstrode Park is an exciting step forward for the charity as we continue to expand our work on a global scale.
“To fulfil our objectives, we are reordering, redistributing our resources and decentralising to form clusters of workers in key geographic areas, especially in urban locations. The sale of Bulstrode is a key element in this.”
