If you’ve always wanted to live the posh life, might we suggest putting all your money into buying the Queen’s grandparents former home. Hey, if we had millions lying around, we’d totally purchase it.

The sprawling 232-acres 18th century English estate called Woolmers Park is on the market for $55 million smackaroos and we completely understand why. The renovated home has eight estate cottages, five reception rooms, eight bedrooms and bathrooms–five of which are en suite–polo and equestrian facilities and, of course, parkland for shooting and fishing.

Although it’s not currently owned by anyone connected to the royal family, the place was once owned by Queen Elizabeth II’s grandparents, the Earl and Countess of Strathmore, who bought it in the 1920s. Apparently Queen Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret spent many days and nights at the historic Georgian country home, that’s just 22 miles from London.

Let’s take a closer look at this beauty.

Sigh.

We plan on somehow becoming BFFs with whoever eventually lands this place, ’cause we can’t get enough.
