The 56-year-old Essex-born bassist and songwriter for the band Iron Maiden, who released his first solo album earlier this year, has put his imposing property on the market with Hamptons International.

Described as "outstanding country house in a highly sought-after area", the glossy brochure includes a shot of the musician's galleried home-recording studio and gold records on the walls of one of five reception rooms.

As well as an ornate, indoor, oval swimming pool and outdoor attractions including a football pitch with home and away changing facilities and a sunken, floodlit tennis court, the grounds, which extend to about nine acres also feature "fully stocked koi carp ponds".

According to the Domesday Book, there has been a house on the site since the 11th century and parts of the current structure date back to 1427.

While much of the interior design shown in the agent's particulars points to an owner in tune with the hall's heritage, with a host of original features, ancient panelling, beams and richly decorated ceilings, the head banger has also installed his very own pub -  the Horse and Cart -  fully equipped with ale on tap.

The rock star has also positioned a traditional red telephone box outside the Grade II listed medieval country pile. 

In all Sheering Hall boasts seven bedrooms, two bathrooms, three shower rooms, a conservatory and a games and cinema room, extending over 11,000 sq ft.
