EuroMillions-winning postie sells mansions worth £4m as hes bored of Scotland

EuroMillions-winning postie, Adrian Bayford, has put three luxury mansions in Scotland on the market worth almost £4million. And two of them are on sale for less than what the dad-of-two paid for them within the last two years.

Bayford, 50, is selling his four-bedroom Ardlebank House in Blairgowrie, Perthshire which comes with a plush rooftop garden for £1.3million despite shelling out £1.35million for the gaff in 2019.

The ex-postie also has a huge seven-bed property in Meikleour, also in Perthshire, which is listed at offers over £1.35million despite Bayford forking out £1.4million on the estate in November last year.

His third property, the five-bedroom Berrybrae Farm also in Blairgowrie that boasts two lochs and a climbing suite which Bayford bought for £1.1million in 2019, is now listed at offers over £1.1million.

Speaking to The Scottish Sun, a source said: "It is quite un­usual for anyone to put three of their homes on the market at the same time.

"But putting three worth more than £1million each up for sale at the same time must be even rarer.

"It will be interesting to see if he makes a profit."

Bayford won £148million with his wife, Gail, in 2012, making the couple the second biggest EuroMillions winners ever.

However the couple split a year later, and Bayford relocated to Scotland to be closer to his children, leaving behind a £12million English country estate home.

The properties have gone on sale only four months after The Scottish Sun reported Bayford had returned to Cambridgeshire, fed up with the lack of pubs in Blairgowrie and was so bored he had taken up archery.

He also missed local watering-holes and Cornish pasties, his favourite food. Bayford missed the hot savory pastries so much, he would get 50 of them delivered to his fancy Scottish abode weekly.

Bayford has another property on the market too. Horseheath Lodge is a £6.5million Grade II Listed Georgian 189-acre Estate in Cambridgeshire Bayford soon after winning his millions for himself and his wife.

The Mirror reports that he tried to sell it because it reminded him of his divorce and two girlfriends dumping him.

After three years on the market, it is in a state of disrepair.
