Model and actress Liz Hurley has sold her redundant Midland home for £9 million, according to the UK press. 

The six bedroom Ampney Knowle (pictured above), near Cirencester, Gloucestershire had been listed so she could concentrate on decorating and furnishing Donnington Hall at Ledbury, Herefordshire.

The larger 13 bedroom Donnington Hall property was bought in 2012 with her ex, former Australian cricketer Shane Warne, with his half share interest bought out last October.

“It’s no secret that I bought Donnington Hall with my former fiancé and it was a tough decision to choose which house to keep as I love them both," Liz told the The Sunday Times Home supplement after her 2014 decision to list Ampney Knowle.

The swimwear designer bought stone-built Ampney Knowle for £3.3 million in 2003. Its sale was reported by the weekend Mirror, albeit with an inaccurate headline.

It is set in 450 acres of Cotswolds countryside, has six bedrooms, a guest annexe, cottages in the grounds and outbuildings.

She had initially asked £6 million just for the house and guest cottage but there were no takers, so she then offered all the farmland at Ampney Knowle near Cirencester, Glos.
