Chance to own giant Lincoln mansion used for housing troops in WWII

A stunning nine-bedroom mansion in the countryside north of Lincoln has gone up for sale at nearly £2 million.

Glentworth Hall is a substantial Grade II listed country house set in five and a half acres of grounds near the small quiet village of Glentworth.

It started life as an Elizabethan manor house and it was used as housing for troops in the second world war before it was left derelict and then partly restored.

Back in 2003, it was priced for auction at £500,000, with the agent warning of a major year-long project to take it up to its full potential.

Now, 17 years later, the current sellers have carried out a big refurbishment and Glentworth Hall is being marketed at four times the original auction price.

It also comes with a large kitchen, his and hers cloakrooms, a swimming and spa pool, a cinema and drawing room, as well as a beautiful gallery staircase.
