Little Sodbury Manor is hardly little, in terms of size or stature. Over 500 years old and once the home of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, the Cotswald home is listed for £8 million, or $10.5 million.

The temperamental king and his second wife stayed there in 1535, but before then it was home to William Tyndale, who is said to have begun the first English translation of the Bible at the property in 1520.

17,385-square-foot, three-story home was renovated in 1920 by Sir Harold Brakspear, who also worked on Windsor Castle. In that renovation, the original kitchen was converted to a billiards room.
