OAKWELL Park, near Dunstable in Bedfordshire, has recently been put on the market by Savills' London office. Dating from the 1920s, the house was built by the Crossly-Holland family in a charming rural setting, surrounded by about 17 acres of mature landscaped gardens and ground. For a brief period, the house was used as a restaurant, before being reconverted to a comfortable family house. Accommodation includes a magnificent full-height Great Hall with a vaulted ceiling, three reception rooms, six bedrooms and ancillary guest or staff accommodation. An impressive leisure complex has been built by the owners and features an all-weather tennis court, heated indoor swimming pool, spa bath and sauna. The sale of Oakwell Park provides one of the first opportunities this year to buy a major house within commuting distance of London. According to Mr Justin Marking of Savills, ''against a background of improving economic prospects, the sale should create considerable interest both locally and nationally''. Oakwell Park is being offered for sale by private treaty with a guide price of GBP550,000 (about HK$6.6 million). For information contact Savills in Hongkong on 526-2283.
