Contest #370 answer: Wentworth Woodhouse, South Yorkshire, UK

Wentworth Woodhouse is the largest privately-owned house in Europe.
The facade is 180 meters long (606 feet for you at the other side the pond) and it has 365 rooms.

It was built in the early 18th century and privately owned ever since.
The current owner is 90 years old and decided to sell the hous.
Asking price is £ 7,000,000,- which doesn’t seems much. But you will get a renovation report with your purchase, advising you to do some restoration work for about £ 40,000,000,-
