The house of diarist and secretary to the Admiralty Samuel Pepys now offers a unique investment opportunity.
There are just 17 years remaining from the 100 years lease that was set up in 1927 at a peppercorn annual rent. The property is leased to the Samuel Pepys Trust (a registered charity) on a full repairing lease.
Dating back to 1590 and set in about one and a half acres of land, the house in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, was almost doubled in size in 1725, extended again in 1927 and now includes 4 bedrooms and 3 receptions.
The asking price for the freehold of this listed house has been discounted to take into account the reducing lease.
