  July 25, 2009 at 3:53 pm by

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, has spent £45million on a country estate once owned by diamond magnate and colonial adventurer Cecil Rhodes. The mansion is Dalham Hall, which is located near Newmarket in Suffolk and runs across 3,300-acres of land including 39 houses, woods, parklands and woodlands.

Dalham Hall is an 18th century mansion and it’s a grade II-listed house. Sheikh Mohammed already owns the 3,000 acre Dalham Hall stud near Newmarket, Suffolk, where he runs his global blood-stock empire. The mansion was sold at a record price for a British country home.
