Classic Horror Film Home is For Sale
A gothic country house in Berkshire that was used as a set for Hammer Horror films has gone up for sale. The house was built in 1859 for Sir Richard Hall Say, who became the High Sheriff of Berkshire in 1864. Although built in the Victorian period, its gothic architecture made it a popular film set for the Hammer Horror films, which were produced at Bray Studios near Maidenhead.
The former private residence was a popular film set because of its close proximity to Bray Studios. The home was used for The Brides of Dracula in 1960; it became Hamilton Manor in The Plague of the Zombies in 1966 and as a school for girls in Nightmare in 1962. Oakley Court in Bray was also used as Frank N Furter's castle in The Rocky Horror Picture Show in 1975. More recently it was home to several members of Team Great Britain during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Oakley Court is now a hotel with a golf course and can be yours. There is no listing for the sale price and means it will cost you a fortune to buy. It would be cool to live in a castle, at least for a little while.
