It was previously owned by the Countess of Warwick, Daisy Greville, and it was bought last year by owner of taxi firm 24/7 Stansted. The manor is now a wedding and events venue.

The land includes Greville Theatre, a barn which was converted into a theatre in the 1920s, with the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Rowan Atkinson performing there.

Andy Mahoney, managing director of 24/7 Stansted, said: “Having acquired the manor in 2018 we stand in the privileged position to be able to welcome back Greville Theatre and its wonderful members. We want to bring the manor back to life and welcome Little Easton and the wider community back through our doors.”

The second most expensive property sold was Hill Green Farm House in Clavering, which was snapped up for £2.25million.
