The home is not included in Richard’s million-dollar homes in Switzerland and the Caribbean. However, the semi-countryside home sits on 1.4 acres. The traditional beaming ceiling is running through the entire property.
Richard is an English Business Magnate and launched the Virgin Group back in the 1970s, and now it controls more than 400 companies working in different fields. He started his career in the mail-order record business. He is moving into the cruise business with Virgin Voyages. Richard has also been active in humanitarian activities. In the 1990s, he and musician Peter Gabriel discussed with Nelson Mandela to come forward and take the initiative to end global conflicts. He has also been involved in several other philanthropist activities. However, over the years, Richard has made a great fortune that only a small group of people has risen to.
Branson’s childhood home has been once again listed for sale for a whopping price of $5.2 Million. Richard has spent his childhood at home recently listed for sale. He went to boarding school at the age of seven and often met his parent during vacations. However, the mansion is now owned by a U.K.-based night club owner. The current owner has listed the home for sale and expects megabucks for the mansion, which was once owned by the billionaire Richard Branson. There is a bespoke kitchen, garden conservatory, pantry, and a family room, which could also be turned into a staff apartment. Richard is too nostalgic about his childhood, and he has expressed his feelings in several interviews.
