THE former home of the late Lord Raglan is up for sale.

Cefntilla Court has 15 bedrooms and beautiful parkland is up for sale with a guide price of £1.65million.

The Llandenny country home has gone up for sale with estate agents Knight Frank.

The Grade II* listed country house has, for the last 150 years, been the seat of the Lord Raglan.

But the sale follows the death of Lord Raglan, Fitzroy John Somerset, who died in 2010 aged 82.

The property comprises of 15 bedrooms, four reception rooms, and three bathrooms, as well as 62.50 acres of land.

The house stands at the end of a long tree-lined drive, surrounded by mature gardens.

The original Jacobean house can be dated by the fireplace in the Great Hall, inscribed “1616”.

Cefntilla fell into disrepair but was rescued in 1856 by the Raglan Memorial Committee who purchased the house and estate for the widow and descendants of FitzRoy Somerset, the first Lord Raglan, who had died in Crimean War whilst leading the British expeditionary force.

Further additions, including the coach house, were added later in the nineteenth century.

There are a number of outbuildings, including a garage for at least five cars and a three bedroomed cottage.

The estate agent adds that the bothy and three bed flat could easily be brought back into occupation.

Earlier this year a private collection of war memorabilia from Cefntilla Court, was sold at auction, on behalf of Lord Raglan’s heir and nephew, Henry van Moyland.

The total sale was £2,019,81.
