The beloved riverside chalet that stole the hearts of Netflix viewers worldwide in the hit series ‘Sex Education’ is now up for sale, with a price tag of £1.5 million (€1.73 million). Built in 1912 as a salmon fishing lodge and completly renovated in 2002, the stunning property boasts not only a rich history but also breathtaking views of the River Wye, in Herefordshire, England, and a unique Norwegian design.
Fans of ‘Sex Education’ will immediately recognize the house as the on-screen residence of the show’s main character, Otis Milburn, and his mother, Jean. Its chalet-style design and riverside location have made it an integral part of the series’ visual identity.
“After 21 years of ownership, we’ve decided to put our beautiful chalet up for sale. Such a privilege to have been the custodian of this wonderful property”, the previous owners shared on the chalet’s Instagram page.
The property’s description highlights its scenic surroundings, noting: “There is also pedestrian access from its grounds down to the River Wye. The property is approached over a very long in-and-out drive, through woodland. There are breathtaking views over the Wye River to the south and north from the interior, and from the strategically built decked external balcony terraces.”
Nestled on a sprawling 1.8-hectare estate, the three-story house offers a cozy living space with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious open-plan area featuring five log burning stoves on the ground floor.
Its property’s charm extends to a stone pizza oven, a Swedish hot bath and an expansive garden that includes a summer house, two greenhouses, a stone and tile outbuilding and even an orchard.
Adding to the allure, a quaint old chapel adjacent to the property, at the end of its long driveway, is also available for purchase, subject to separate negotiation.
Knight Frank in Bristol is handling the sale and their office head, Jammed Toogood, remarked: “The fact that this property is so well known only adds to the appeal of what is an incredibly rare opportunity to own a spectacular home, with exceptional views of the River Wye in a beautiful, private, woodland setting.”
