A new owner is needed for a £5.25million mansion that was featured in the 1999 Great Expectations film.

And you could own the Grade II-listed house for just £13.50.

The home's claim to fame is that it was depicted as Miss Havisham's Satis House in the film adaptation of the well-known Charles Dickens' novel.

Its conservatory was also used to portray the study of Matthew Pocket, Pip's tutor and cousin of Miss Havisham. 

Dancers Hill House, located on the edge of Hertfordshire and Barnet, is a Georgian house built in 1760, surrounded by four acres of land.

It has six-bedroom property includes a separate three-bedroom cottage in a private walled garden. 

It was also used as a prisoners of war camp in WWII.

Nigel and Melanie Walsh, who owned the house for twenty-five years, decided to place the beloved home up-for-grabs in a raffle as their three children had left the home and they found it difficult to sell the home with the current housing market and Brexit concerns.

They first started the raffle in August 2018 but the couple delayed the deadline to Christmas Day (December 25, 2019) due to the number of applicants not fulfilling the amount they believed there would be.

The couple said: “Dancers Hill House has been in the family for two decades. Our three sons have grown up there, one was married in the grounds, the other was an extra in the tv adaption of Great Expectations when it was filmed in our garden.

“Having seen other couples pull their raffles, we are determined to find a new owner for our beautiful home. As such, we have extended the offer a further six months.”

Residing at the mansion would mean staying at a place with an extensive history. Around 1500, the land originally had a manor which Queen Elizabeth I was rumoured to have stayed in.

The current house structure was built around 1760, it was extended and transformed several times into a habitable home in the 19th Century.

During World War II, officers resided in the main house while Italian prisoners of war were kept on site.

The property itself is also quite spacious – with six shower / bathrooms which overlooks the grounds, three lounges, a dining room and a kitchen which opens to a conservatory. It also includes a cinema, wine room, a snug room, gym & shower room and more.

The competition is being overseen by Sterling Lotteries, a ticket to enter the raffle can be purchased here.
