    A roughly 20-year-old estate in the U.K. countryside formerly owned by the late 6th Baron of Harlech, Francis Ormsby-Gore, is on the market for a whopping  £12.5 million or about $15.8 million.

    The property, called The Mount, is situated on a sprawling 47-acre site in Oswestry, Shropshire. It is discreetly tucked behind double gates and positioned atop a sweeping drive.

    The ancestral property was originally part of the Ormsby-Gore family’s vast Brogyntyn Estate. Lord Harlech owned the home before he was forced to sell it in 2001 due to debt. The Edwardian-style house has since been replaced by a Georgian mansion by its current owners, who have undergone renovations to seamlessly blend the old and new.

    The Mount opens to a main reception hall adorned with a cantilevered staircase and it leads to a drawing room and a formal dining room.

    It offers a variety of modern luxuries, including an elevator, inside a spacious 31,000-square-foot home designed by Shrewsbury-based conservation experts and architects Andrew Arrol and James Wade of Arrol and Partners.

    The property has seven bedrooms, seven baths, underfloor heating, double-glazed windows, and hand-carved walls made of Derbyshire stone. In addition to an open kitchen, drawing room, and dining room, it also has a gym, a snooker room, a 65-foot indoor swimming pool, and a steam room.

    Meanwhile, outside is a tennis court and landscaped grounds comprising walled gardens, a vegetable garden, three ponds, and a helipad. The Mount also has a separate three-bedroom cottage with a driveway. It also has an orangery that occupies the length of the rear wing.
