Sir Richard Branson’s childhood home, in the popular village of Shamley Green in Surrey, has just recently come on the market with Sotheby's Realty.
Known as Tanyard Farm, the red-brick manor house listed last week with a £4 million (US$5.2 million) price tag.

Mr. Branson’s parents, Edward and Evette, acquired the home in 1963 from a viscountess, according to property records, which don’t indicate how much the Branson family paid for the home or when they parted with it.
It is believed that the Virgin tycoon founded his company from this very home – so it could provide a good omen for the further landlord.
Richard Branson founded the Virgin Group in the Seventies selling mail-order records and the business expanded into airlines, trains, banking and, most recently, space travel.
His earlier experiments on the property included budgie breeding and growing Christmas trees, although neither venture proved successful.
Tucked away behind ironwork gates, the four-bedroom home sits on roughly 1.4 acres, according to the listing.
Full of character and charm, the 'tardis-like' home is a treasure trove of eclectic curiosities.
Along with beamed ceilings galore, the home has leaded windows, stately fireplaces and a spiral staircase. There’s also a bespoke kitchen, conservatory, study, formal dining room and a play area.
It’s also bursting with opportunity, Director of Country Sales at Sotheby’s Realty Jason Corbett, said in a statement.
'This house is full of history, character, warmth and charm. Perfect for families looking to be close to leading schools, yet located in one of Surrey’s most sought after villages, with two lovely pubs, a cricket green and a local shop just a short walk away.
'The potential to create further accommodation or leisure facilities in the garden is a real possibility, making this a home with little comparison.'
The property is available for via Sotheby's Realty for £4 million.
