Dating back to the 11th century, Bradford Manor is a property with such a historic pedigree that it even gets a mention in the Domesday Book. 


The property was given a Victorian overhaul by the Bradford family (famed for their engineering), and according to the listing on OnTheMarket.com, extensive records about its history are available at the Exexter Records Office.


As well as offering six bedrooms, a huge kitchen and breathtaking grounds (via a cinema room and a jaw-dropping library), the property also comes with two other unexpected bonuses for the new owner.


Firstly, it's located in a 'dark sky area' - meaning it's the perfect place to enjoy a little star-gazing. Secondly, the new owners of the property will instantly receive the titles Lord and Lady of Bradford. Let's face it: it's not every day you buy a new home and become a Lady.


The property is up for sale at £1.95 million; see the listing in full here
