Halswell House in Bridgwater, Somerset, is one of Britain's finest houses and boasts Tudor buildings and 31 acres

The Palladian mansion was described by Pevsner as 'the most important house of its date in the country'

Ballroom, banqueting hall, lake and follies all included with auctioneer's guide price of £250,000-£500,000 for the lot

The estate was repossessed after owner Grahame Bond declared bankrupt and is priced for a quick sale
