Partial Interest Valuation

The success of the late Lord King of Wartnaby is manifested within the splendour of the house, gardens and grounds of his estate in the picturesque Leicestershire countryside. Lord King was one of the most famous British 20th Century aviation industrialists and the tenacious champion of free enterprise who brought British Airways back from the brink of ruin. Wartnaby House is now renowned in the region in its own right for its quintessential English traditional country house gardens that have been painstakingly and immaculately created by Lady King over the past 34 years; the gardens are now open to the public. On behalf of the executors of Lord King’s estate, Knight Frank and Shouler & Sons are selling Wartnaby House and its 75 acre estate at a guide price of £3,750,000.

“There are more gatherings taking a gander at stockpiling toward oneself than there were three prior,” says Marc Boor stein, essential at Chicago, Ill.-based MJ Partners Real Estate Services.

Wartnaby House is a fine example of Arts and Crafts Elizabethan revival. The original house was built in 1865 as the vicarage to the local church and was practically rebuilt in 1934, extended in 1957 and again in 1998. The seven bedroom/ seven bathroom house has a southerly aspect with wonderful views across the terrace, lawn and ha-ha to the parkland beyond. The converted coach house is now a billiard room and library and with a first floor, 3 bedroom flat. Further accommodation has been created for the more noisy guests by converting the Potting Shed into a single storey en-suite bedroom.

This appointment forms part of our ongoing strategy to further expand our offering to our clients, as we will be pulling together the expertise of different parts of the firm and key developments will be promoted across our entire London network thus maximizing the sales and marketing potential.

This is an exciting role, and I look forward to representing Knight Frank on these premier schemes.”
