EuroMillions Winner Adrian Bayford Sells £6.5M Georgian Mansion
EuroMillions winner Adrian Bayford has put his Georgian mansion and country estate on the market.
The 48-year-old landed a £148m jackpot in 2012 and purchased the Grade-II listed mansion in Suffolk with £6.5m. The man told estate agents to market his property, including 189 acres of parkland, fields and woods after Gillian, his ex-wife, decide to sell her £735,000 waterfront home near Dundee, Scotland.
Adrian was still married to Gillian when he moved into the house. Rumours said that he might have delivered letters to the mansion when he worked as a postman.
However, 15 months after their massive win, Adrian and Gillian separated and later divorced. Adrian continued to live in the house and even installed statues of knights, wild boars and kept a herd of Highland Cattle on the field in front of his property.
Estate agents Strutt & Parker confirmed that Adrian’s mansion was going to be sold. Fully refurbished, the house features marble fireplaces in its reception rooms, full-length sash windows and high ceilings.
