Pedigree: Christened Kingstone Lisle Park, this historic property occupies more than 1,000 sylvan acres on the outskirts of Oxfordshire, some 75 miles west of London. Presiding over the vast piece of land is a Palladian-style manor that dates from the late 17th century. (It is being sold by Jamie Lonsdale, a member of the prominent British banking family.) The masonry façade gives way to a series of grand interior spaces, including a billiard room and a formal entrance hall with a barrel-vaulted coffered ceiling.
Property values: A swimming pool, tennis court, and cottage also dot the grounds, which contain formal gardens with topiaries, farmable pastures, lakes, hunting fields, and more.
Talking point: The home is said to have played host to a number of royal visitors, perhaps most notably Princess Diana, who was a close friend of Lonsdale’s ex-wife.
