The mansion was redeveloped in 2002
Updown Court first came on the market in 2005 for more than £70 million and became the most expensive private residence ever in the UK.
The developers failed to find a buyer but claim they had interest from one British, one Russian and one Far East buyer.
The property sits within 58 acres of landscaped grounds, formal gardens & woodland and offers several ponds with fountains,
a heated marble driveway, helipad, a lake, tennis court, security lodge & two guest homes.
