A Grade II-listed Georgian home that remained in the ownership of the same family for almost 200 years is for sale at £1.85m.

Syerston Hall was built in 1793-5 by William Fillingham, a surveyor and land agent to the Duke of Rutland.

He had bought the 500 acres of land in 1792 for £12,375 before immediately starting work on the hall.

William Fillingham died in 1795 before he could see the work completed. The estate passed to his eldest son, George, and remained in the family until the late 1970s.

It is currently owned by Mr Sukhi Ghuman, CEO of Octavian, a company that provides several services including security and IT.

He bought Syerston Hall, and the surrounding 23 acres, in 2009. Syerston Hall Management Company Limited looks after the communal parts of the estate.

Mr Ghuman said: “I had intended that this would be my family’s ‘final home’ but I relocated to the United States in 2013 for business reasons.

“It’s a reluctant sale but as I am now based in Arizona, I’ve decided to sell the house.”

It is on the market with Humberts.
