Planning permission has been granted to build Britain’s largest new home in the Oxfordshire countryside. It has hit the market for a cool £20m, but it could be worth more than £100m once built. 

St John’s House in Ramsden is currently just a plot of 60 acres of private parkland, but now planning permission has been obtained, a mega mansion will be built on a 68,000 foot estate.
