Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-serving monarch in Britain’s history, as well as the oldest monarch ever to reign over the United Kingdom. She’s currently selling her 70,000 square foot estate in Hertfordshire, England for the equivalent of $43 million US dollars.
Queen Elizabeth II is beloved by many around the world and there are plenty of people who would love to own one of her former homes. And as long as they can come up with $43 million (£30 million in the UK), they could be in luck. Woolmers Park, Queen Elizabeth’s childhood estate, could be yours–as long as you have that much cash sitting around is up for grabs for anyone with that much cash lying around.

Located in Hertfordshire, England, the massive Woolmers Park includes 232 acres of land, extensive polo grounds, and 70,000 square feet of living space. That living space includes the main house, eight cottages, and polo and equestrian facilities, meaning you’ll have plenty of privacy for both your guests and your horses.
The main home alone includes eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, just in case you want to sleep in a different bedroom every night for a week. A two-bedroom staff apartment adjoins the main home and could be used to house housekeepers or other in-house help. It could also be used for aging parents or other loved ones in need of support and privacy. The space in this home means it can be used in dozens of different ways.
Woolmers Park has a total of five reception rooms meant for entertaining guests, as well as several more personal family rooms designed only for the residents and closest guests. You’ll never run out of room to entertain.
The rooms still hold a timeless elegance quintessential to Queen Elizabeth II, balancing modern luxuries with a classic, traditional style. An indoor pool sits in the middle of a beautiful columned room, perfect for enjoying a swim or getting some aquatic exercise any time of year while enjoying natural light from the expansive skylights.
The land also includes vast open spaces offering privacy and an escape from the hustle and bustle. If you’re up for it you can hunt on the land or fish in the River Lea that crosses the property, just like the royal family has done for years.
The Hertfordshire Polo Club sits on the estate grounds and includes both indoor and outdoor polo fields. The royal family values their privacy, so there are no public roads across the estate. The new owner will be able to enjoy every corner of the 232 acres in peace and privacy.
