Althorp House

Althorp House, home to the Spencer family for five centuries, is currently owned by Charles Spencer, the 9th Earl of Spencer and brother to the late Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales. This elegant house, located in England's East Midlands, contains some 100,000 square feet of interior space and 31 bedrooms. The home sits on an estate of 14,000 acres — an area approximately the size of Manhattan. Though this current structure is a couple of centuries newer, the original house on the estate dates to the year 1508, when the Tudors still ruled England. In more recent times, guests to the home have included Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev, Winston Churchill and nearly every British king and queen for the past 400 years.
