Well now’s your chance – and it could set you back a mere £13.50.

Between South Mimms and Barnet is Dancers Hill House, a six bed dream home with its own one-and-a-half acre lake stocked with more than 2,000 fish.

Built in 1760, its features include a gym, a wine room and a cinema room, covering a total area of approximately 7,500 square feet.

Owner Melanie Walsh and her husband decided earlier this year that, after a quarter of a century at the house, the time was right to move on: “We bought Dancers Hill House 27 years ago when our three boys were small - we brought it back from nothing, it was totally neglected.

“Now they have families of their own, the house is too big for us and we’ve decided to sell.”

They started marketing the property for £6.25m with Statons earlier this year in a package that also included a separate cottage in the grounds.

But thanks to “the gloom of Brexit and high stamp duty ruining the property market”, the home remained on the market, prompting Melanie to adopt a more modern approach to making a sale.

The prize, without the bonus cottage, is valued at £5.25m - and “for the price of a glass of wine and a sandwich” it could all be yours.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply visit the website, pay your £13.50 and answer a question linked to the property.

Melanie has her fingers crossed that there will be enough entrants to make the competition a success, adding: “If it works, what fun!”
