Mary Berry’s stunning six-bedroom Buckinghamshire mansion with huge kitchen and sprawling grounds is on the market for £3.5m
Mary Berry’s former home in Buckinghamshire has been put on the market for £3.5 million.
The former GBBO judge, 88, has downsized from the luxurious six-bedroom property after living there with her family for more than 30 years.
Not surprisingly, the Grade II listed house has a large open-plan kitchen with four Aga ovens, a walk-in fridge and even a second prep kitchen perfect for any baker.
With Lucy Patten buying the property after the beloved TV chef told The Times: “It has been a huge privilege working in Mary Berry’s old kitchen.” It’s a really good workspace, and the large fridge is an added bonus.’
The house also features a Juliet balcony overlooking the stunning grounds not to mention the detached two bedroom cottage.
According to Lucy, Mary often called when she visited the village and its ancient shrines.
She told the publication: “She’ll come over and have a cup of tea. When we moved in, she had a party to introduce us to all the neighbours. They’re all very friendly.”
Mary reportedly opted to ‘downsize’ in 2017 and moved with husband Paul Honings into a £2.6million property due to it being ‘closer to Waitrose’.
The sprawling new four-bedroom property in Henley comes complete with a detached cottage, double garage with gym, tennis court and indoor pool featuring a swim-up bar and giant palm tree mural.
Costing £2.6million – £400,000 less than the original asking price – the move also ensures the star and her 57-year-old husband can enjoy their twilight years in comfort.
But most importantly, the new platform has another key advantage: it is only eight minutes away from the nearest Waitrose store.
A source told MailOnline at the time: ‘She’s really excited about being closer to Waitrose and has already realized it’s only an eight-minute walk away.’
“They have hired builders at the moment and have a lot of work done, and are hoping to move in around Christmas.”
Earlier this year, James Martin revealed he once took Lady Marie on a six-hour night out to one of the top clubs in Ibiza.
The TV chef, 50, admitted as much on an episode of This Morning to the shock of Holly Willoughby and Dermot O’Leary.
He noted that the baking legend enjoyed the night at the famous Pasha Club, and even had a dance.
Holly James asked: “I hear you have a little story about Ibiza?”
He replied: “It’s a claim to fame!” I took Mary Berry for a six-hour night at Pacha.
Holly replied in amazement: Are you kidding me? Did you enjoy it?
James nodded, “You did it. You led me astray.” She even hit the dance floor.
Holly struggled to wrap her mind around the wild tale and said: “I’ve just got this picture of Mary Berry in a bikini and a whistle.”
Marie herself has opened up about her experiences leaving the popular party venue in the past.
Speaking to Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett’s Dish show, she recalled one visit, saying: “I can remember thinking this is very exciting, and I can remember walking up the stairs to Pasha and someone came up and hit you.”
“I’d never been stamped before. I thought, ‘Will this ever end?’ He was like a rabbit warren. The place was cramped and had a lot of floors and aisles, and everyone was drinking and smoking.
“It suddenly occurred to me, ‘If there was a fire, would we get out?’ But despite that, it was a lot of fun.
