An Essex mansion has gone up for sale – two years after it was the focus of media attention following the shooting of its millionaire businessman owner.
The Grade II listed Georgian mansion, on the market for £1,995,000, was the scene of an armed home invasion in February 2016.
The 8,688 square foot property, being sold by Carter Jonas, boasts walled grounds of about 5.2 acres, with a swimming pool, tennis court, coach house, garages and an annexe.
Two men were later jailed for the burglary, described by a judge as “every householder’s utter nightmare”, in which Timothy Mardon was blasted in the leg with a sawn-off shotgun, through the locked bedroom door of his Sible Hedingham property, The Old Rectory.
Mr Mardon was targeted in the mistaken belief he was a drug dealer – but he actually worked in insurance and lived in Bermuda for most of the year.
