Bobby drops price on mansion by £1 million

Gazette: Bobby drops price on mansion by £1 million Bobby drops price on mansion by £1 million

DARTS ace Bobby George has cut the price of his selfbuilt mansion by £1million.

The arrows ace and his wife Marie put George Hall, in Ardleigh, on the market for £3.5million last March, saying they are too old to manage it.

But after only attracting a small number of viewings, the couple have decided to reduce the asking price to £2.5million.

They hope a businessman will see the 18-bedroom home in the shape of dart flights as an ideal conversion opportunity.

Bobby, 68, said he does not want timewasters booking up to view the property.

He said: “We can’t have people here who just want to come around and say: ‘What has he got?’ Anyone serious about it can talk to the agent.”

If you are interested you may want to factor in the cost of replacing the carpets, they are something from the 80's/90's

Yes nice carpets!!! Dropping the price in a rising market suggests an over ambitious valuation in the first place. Any developer is unlikely to be able to get planning approval to build outside the present property footprint so the Six acres of grounds and ponds could become a burden.
