A stunning multi-million-pound manor house that bears more than a passing resemblance to photos posted on social media by Jamie Dornan’s wife, Amelia Warner, appears to have just been sold. Eagle-eyed fans of the famous couple may recognise features from the sprawling property in Amberley from Instagram posts by Amelia.
Although latest reports say the family is located more in the Nailsworth area, there are some definite similarities between the photos posted on Amelia’s @awarnermusic account. But whether the pictures were taken at the Gloucestershire home of the Belfast star or from someone else’s residence isn’t clear.
The notoriously private couple moved to their new home near Stroud shortly before their third daughter was born in February 2019.
In 2020, composer Amelia told Gloucestershire Live: “The beauty of the Cotswolds is a huge inspiration to me. The sense of history and time as well. The space and wildness are definitely a big influence on my music.”
Referring to her young daughters, Dulcie, Elva and Alberta, she added: “It is the perfect place for young children. They are free and feral.”
The wisteria-clad Amberley Court, which was said to have been looked at by David and Victoria Beckham when it was previously on the market back in 2015, according to multiple media reports at the time, appears to have been sold within the past few weeks.
Dating back to the 17 th Century, the extensive property which has eight bedrooms, a swimming pool, tennis court and equestrian centre, is being marketed by Knight Frank estate agents in Cirencester, who declined to comment on the identity of the current owners.
With incredible views over the Woodchester valley, the period manor house has been extensively renovated over the past three years to sympathetically bring it up to the 21 st Century, including a new swimming pool, and neighbouring summer house.
The grounds surround the house on all sides and there is also a charming lodge cottage at the head of the drive and further outbuildings adjoining the main house.
New features include a reclaimed Cotswolds limestone fireplace, as well as underfloor heating and an opened-up breakfast and reception room.
Three beautiful southerly-facing bay windows in the dining room, library and drawing room allow you to survey your estate in comfort, including a completely rebuilt conservatory and terrace, perfect for sipping something chill on warm summer evenings.
Entertaining in the 31ft drawing room shouldn’t be a problem, with its light, spacious feel, high ceilings and double French doors leading from the bay into the gardens, or you could treat guests to a private screening in the home cinema and games room.
