To the Manor Reborn...<br />
<br />
Britain's super rich are turning their backs on the decaying stately piles beloved by the aristocracy and building brand new modern mansions on their country estates.<br />
<br />
Rather than investing in the leaky roofs and draughty windows of days gone by, modern millionaires are choosing to build plush pads from the ground up.<br />
<br />
And they are filling their dream homes with every conceivable luxury without the need for a bottomless sink fund to pay for the costly upkeep of older houses.<br />
<br />
Estate agents specialising in top-end properties have reported a clear swing from grand Victorian manor houses to state of the art modern homes kitted out with all the mod cons.<br />
<br />
The multi-million pounds properties have been popping up across the country over the past few years - and are now being heralded as the stately homes of the future.
