Liz Hurley and beau Warnie splash $7.6m on UK country estate
Melbourne: Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne have spent a whopping 7.6 million dollars on a Georgian country mansion.
The purchase of Donnington Hall in a picturesque part of Herefordshire is a big step up the property ladder for the former cricketer and his fiancee.
The magnificent Donnington Hall has 13 bedrooms, five bathrooms, stables, a private lake and tennis courts, as well as 76 hectares of land, 46 of which are parkland and landscaped gardens, the Daily Mail reported.
With four children between them - Hurley’s son Damian and Warne’s children Brooke, 15, Jackson, 13, and Summer, ten - and their extensive family and friends, there is plenty of room to accommodate all.
There is also room for a housekeeper and nanny, an extensive cellar, 12 stables, a coach house, tennis court and four estate cottages.
Donnington Hall, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, is Grade II listed and was the country seat of the Bishop of Hereford until the mid-18th century.
The current Georgian building was built by the wealthy Skippe family, who bought it in 1671.
