Sarah Beeny: Inside Channel 4 presenter’s incredible 97-room Grade II listed mansion

Sarah Beeny, 47, has sold her 29-bedroom mansion in East Yorkshire for a cool £1.4 million.

The property expert bought Rise Hall, a Grade II listed building, in 2001 for £440,000 and turned it into a luxury wedding venue.

The renovation was documented in Channel 4 show Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare which aired from 2010 to 2013.

After a complicated refurbishment, Sarah and her husband Graham Swift sold the Yorkshire property for £1.4 million – making a profit of £1 million minus the renovation costs.

Sarah and Graham, who held their own wedding reception at the historic building in 2003, rescued the dilapidated building and turned into the stunning venue you see today.

The couple went on to have four children – Billy, 14, Charlie, 13, Rafferty, 10 and Laurie, nine – and split their time between the 97-room stately home and their main property in South West London.

The Downton Abbey-style mansion, which sits on 30 acres of land, is likely to continue hosting weddings and events as it was sold to hospitality entrepreneurs Daniel and Helen Gill.

Sarah said of the sale: “Rise Hall has been a big part of our lives for the last 18 years and we are extremely proud of the work that we, together with an incredible team, have achieved to date. But it’s time to move on.

She continued: “We are thrilled to be passing it onto Dan and Helen, who we feel are the perfect fit for such a very special place.”
