A little while back there was a small discussion about buying a home overseas and retiring there.

Have I got a deal for you.

Henry VIII home goes on sale for £26m
A former home of Henry VIII has been put on the market for a cool £26m, making it the most expensive property to ever be offered for sale in the borough.
The price is a far cry from its £13,000 asking price in the 1950s.
The Old Rectory in Church Road, Wimbledon Park, once owned by Henry VIII, is Merton's oldest home dating back more than 500 years.
Built in the early 1500s, the medieval mansion is set behind St Mary’s Church within 2.5 acres overlooking the All England Tennis Club.
Spanning a massive 16,200 sq foot, the palatial grade two listed building boasts 10 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 8 reception rooms and a medieval chapel - the oldest part of the house.

  • Oh we would need more than one But I think Bobby Flay is a great choice. I wonder if we could get them to doan end of the world Iron Chef battle from there and all of us would be the judges.
