Mr Clarke said: 'It's a property of great substance, the type of which you don't see on the market very often, as a rule.

'There are a lot of different influences from different eras and it's Grade II*-listed, which means it is extra-high maintenance.

The family selling the estate are understood to have owned it for several decades.

The mansion is thought to have been built primarily by Thomas Ewan in 1682.

It was substantially altered and enlarged in the 19th century. It was once home to Agnes Strickland, the history writer and poet.
