A home which has been sold by raffle was last on the market with an online agent.
According to Rightmove, the property was listed last December at £650,000 by HouseSimple. Other agents had previously tried to market the home at higher prices.
The owner of Melling Manor, in Lancashire, has now sold his home after raising nearly £900,000 from the sale of some 440,000 tickets at £2 each.
The winner, Marie Segar, bought 20 tickets for a total of £40. Her prize has included not only the house which, despite its size and grand name, is a semi, but her Stamp Duty bill and legal fees.
The owner, Dunstan Low, bought the property, a former hotel, to do up.
He says the raffle has helped him recoup everything he spent on the property, plus delivered a small profit.
