Safe as houses...The country retreat of former Tory grandee Willie Whitelaw comes with high level security.<br />
<br />
This stunning manor comes with more protection than your standard burglar alarm - it's got bulletproof windows.<br />
<br />
Ennim in Blencow, Cumbria, was the home of prominent politician and Margaret Thatcher's right-hand man William Whitelaw for 43 years until his death.<br />
<br />
Due to his role as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in 1972 the house was fitted with bulletproof glass and a substantial police presence was maintained at the house throughout his time there, even after he retired.<br />
<br />
Now the house has been updated and is a beautiful family country home with nine acres of land on the market with H&H King for £1,695,000.
