The ruins of a 300-year-old stately home in Britian are on sale with offers already tipping $700k.
The remnants of the once-stunning Trehane House are being put on the market with preliminary offers in excess of £600,000 ($73o,000).
The home was destroyed by fire in 1946 and never rebuilt.
Upmarket realtors Lillicrap Chilcott have labeled the reconstruction project, which has full planning permission, as an 'unrivaled and unrepeatable' opportunity.
Agents said it would be one of the region's "finest country homes" when rebuilt.
The new owner would also acquire five acres of land near Truro, Cornwall.
Based near the villages of Probus and Tresillian, the manor historically was known to have had some of Cornwall's best gardens after 200 years of cultivation.
In the marketing material, a spokesperson for the agents said: "An exceptional 5-acre site in a magical and private setting, with the ruins of a Grade II Listed Queen Anne manor house and detailed planning consent for its reconstruction to create what would be one of Cornwall's finest country houses.
"An unrivalled and unrepeatable opportunity in a blissful yet highly convenient location."
First built in around 1700, the land itself has history stretching back to the rule of Queen Elizabeth I when it's owner, Sir John Trehane, was recorded as having fought the Spanish Armada.
The home itself was built by then owner John Williams, who completed the construction in three years as a new home for his family.
The house eventually became home to Austrian Jews fleeing the Nazi German annexation of the nation in 1938, and later hosted US soldiers preparing for the D-Day landings.
Owned by a line of military officers, naturalist Captain William Stackhouse Church Pinwill was recorded to have inherited the property in 1861.
Unfortunately, the gardens and the house were destroyed after a plumber accidentally set fire to the property in 1946.
Now just a pair of chimneys and an outer wall shell, with some internal walls still intact, the property is still surrounded by lush countryside.
