Eight bedroom mansion listed for £5m is hiding an incredible inside

A MANSION which is near where Henry VIII used to go hunting has been listed for £5million – but its interiors will surprise you.

The property is set in the grounds of Hertingfordbury Park, in Hertfordshire, and has eight bedrooms, a games room and a home gym.

It's also surrounded by a Grade II listed red brick wall.

But photos from the listing show that the current owners have furnished the home in a bizarre way.

The main entrance hall has several large taxidermy animals – including zebras, giraffes and a flamingo.



Meanwhile the sitting room has three large sofas, with vibrant cushions, and lamps made of feathers.

The coffee table is also posh – with gold, ornate legs and a glass table top.

In the dining room, next to the kitchen, there's another taxidermy animal – this time a polar bear, which has been dressed up as a waiter in a waistcoat, bowtie and a hat with goggles. The bear is also holding a serving tray.

For more decoration, there's a glass chandelier and silver model of The Queen as a centrepiece of the metal table.



And in the cinema room, there's a nod to 007 with a replica of James Bond's famous Aston Martin car – which seems to have been turned into a sofa.

Next to the screen are two models of naked women that have been decorated in tiny mirrors, similarly to a disco ball.

The master bedroom has entirely mirrored furniture – including a mirrored four-poster bed – and in the a triple garage, the owner has put their three classic cars inside large, protective bubbles.



Estate agent Savills, which has listed the house, said the property consists of a main house and then an annexe, which is where three other bedrooms, the games room and the garage is.

The home, called The Walled Manor, is surrounded by green fields and Panshanger Park.

Hertingfordbury Park is also where Henry VIII and his youngest daughter, Elizabeth I, would go hunting.

The house left Mumsnet users baffled – with several questioning the owners' tastes.



One said: "What a cracker. Starts off reasonably, but by photo four has completely gone off the rails."

Another wrote: "Oh gosh. Where to start….! Was it the zebra rocking horse that put you off? The dog waiter? Or the mirrored cube bed……"

One reader added: "That is atrocious. The decoration is actually criminal. Who has a stuffed polar bear as a table. Nuts!"

The home is not the only unusual property on the market.

A pastel pink castle with its own labyrinth and outdoor pool is currently up for sale in Scotland.

Meanwhile, new stats say one in six Brits would make an offer on a property after a virtual viewing.
