Asil Nadir in Rutland

A reader kindly reminds me that Asil Nadir, like all the best people, one owned an estate in Rutland.

This Independent article from 1993 gives the details:
He bought the spectacular mansion of Burley-on-the Hill in Rutland for about pounds 7m - without its 2,000-acre estate. He intended to turn the house into a hotel. He subsequently paid pounds 2m for extra land for golf courses, but his business collapsed before these could be developed. For him, as for many others, the 'estate' followed the private helicopter as the ultimate symbol of success.
