Steve Harris’s Essex Estate Hits The Market

Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris’s Essex estate hit the market at a price-point nearly 40-percent less than its original asking price. The home, on sale for close to £4 million, was originally listed at upwards of £7 million in 2012, but has since dropped significantly. The nine-acre estate includes a medieval country house known as Sheering Hall (with elements dating back to 1427) and has belonged to the Iron Maiden star since the 1980s.

The 11,000-square-foot Grande-II house includes 11 bedrooms, an original medieval entrance hall surrounded by three reception rooms, open fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling oak-paneled walls, gilded ornate cornicing, high ceilings, and exposed beams. Three of the 11 bedrooms are housed in an outbuilding complete with a sitting room, two shower rooms, several workshop areas, and a garage. But notes that the most exciting feature of the home is its private pub, dubbed “The Horse & Cart.” Located on the ground floor, it was reportedly installed by Harris and boasts a selection of spirits, several ales on tap, and a pool table.

The estate sits on the border of Essex and Hertfordshire, and also boasts a split-level recording and editing studio as well as an indoor heated pool, a separate entrance for a children’s play area, a fully stocked koi carp pond, football pitch, and sunken floodlit tennis court. The listing is currently managed by Hamptons International.
