THIS striking historic property could be used as a filming site after it failed to sell for a whopping £10 million.

The grade I listed Jacobean mansion, set within Grade II listed parkland, woodland and lake is one of the largest and most important prodigy house mansions in England.

Bramshill House, in Hook, is steeped in royal history as it sits on land previously owned by King Henry VIII.

King James and King Charles I kept state apartments in the home during the early 17th century.

But if new plans are approved by Hart District Council, the site will be used as a film set for two years.

The Bramshill estate has been listed for sale since April last year, but with an eyewatering price tag of £10 million it is no surprise that a buyer is hard to find.

The latest planning application, submitted this month on behalf of Ad Locations, details proposals to temporarily turn the estate into a filming location.

The plans propose to use a number of buildings on the site for filming including Bramshill House, Foxley Hall, the sports hall/gym and Nuffield and Newham Hall.

The application states the lake will act as a backdrop for filming but no plans are in place to film on the lake itself.

In the application it notes that no work will be carried out on the grade I listed building, with no attachments or fixtures proposed to its fabric.

Information on the council website states the site will be "reinstated to its original condition and appearance" mid-2023 with a maximum of 200 people on site for any production.

The application also details the economic benefits of the film set estimating £200,000 - £300,000 will be spent within the local area.

The planning application reads: “It is estimated that for every 10 jobs directly supported by the core UK film industry, another 10 are supported indirectly in the supply chain and from the induced spending of those directly or indirectly employed by the core film industry.

“In terms of this proposal, during construction and filming phases, the production company and crew will use local facilities and services. This will bring a boost to the local economy in Hart district by providing local employment and use of services. It is predicted that approximately £200,000 - £300,000 will be spent within the local area alone. This will feed directly into the local economy.”

The planning application can be viewed on the Hart District Council website using the reference 19/01288/FUL.
