It would appear that Jolyon Maugham is finding it a little difficult to shift that stunningly modern and contemporary house of his. You know, the one that we taxpayers coughed up to add an opera room to or what was it.
So much so that The Guardian is now running free advertising for it.
Their pictures section today:
Homes for sale in converted farm buildings – in pictures
From an award-winning seven-bedroom windmill and granary to a two-bedroom ‘bolt-hole’ barn conversion
How lovely, eh?
Clayton, West Sussex
This seven-bedroom conversion with fabulous views of the South Downs is made up of a Grade II-listed 19th-century windmill and attached roundhouse, a granary and a 20th-century mill house, all in 0.6 hectares (1.5 acres). It won two Royal Institute of British Architects awards in 2017 including a conservation award. Most of the interiors are stunningly contemporary with vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glazed sections and concrete floors. There is a stone-walled dining space with wood-burning pizza oven in the centre of the gardens. £3m. The Modern House, 020 3795 5920

Gosh, where have we heard that before?
@lindatheactor I own a windmill in Sussex.

After multiple false claims by Jolyon Maugham QC that the Mail on Sunday was attempting to dox his address, Maugham is now abandoning his Sussex windmill after £750,000 of restoration; listing the 7-bedroom Grade-II listed, twentieth-century millhouse on Rightmove for £3,000,000.
Ah, yes. So, when finding the gaff a little hard to shift why not get a national newspaper to offer a bit of freebie advertising?
Well, yes, there’s nothing like a tad of unearned privilege to be shared amongst progressive media types, is there?
