Hugh Grant’s love nest he rented with ex Elizabeth Hurley is back on the market for £2.85M

Hugh Grant’s former love nest, that he rented with ex Elizabeth Hurley, has been put back on the market for £2.85 million.

The actor, 60, who dated the model from 1987 to 2000, fled the capital to the house near Bath that he rented for a year, after he was arrested for an illicit liaison with prostitute Divine Brown in Los Angeles in 1995.

Hugh’s former cottage certainly proved to be the ideal escape, as it boasts three acres of land, at least five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and even a library of sorts with one of the reception rooms covered with wall-to-wall books.

Hugh’s former country home, which he famously returned to following his arrest 26 years ago, is situated on a quiet lane and boasts classic brickwork and beams in keeping with the rustic feel.

The interior features a relaxed kitchen and aga, as well as white wooden worktops and oak flooring, with low ceilings that are a fixture of such country properties.

As well as a room that could be designated as a library of sorts, the house also features classic wooden furnishings and simple whitewashed walls, and benefits hugely from large windows offering plenty of natural light.
