How many bake sales will we have to do in order to raise £3m (€3.56m) to buy the Great British Bake Off judge's former home?

The stunning property, known as The Red House, is located in Buckinghamshire, England and currently on the market through Savills.

Naturally, it's the perfect house for cooking and entertaining and features a 28-foot kitchen, complete with an Aga oven and country-chic style furnishings, as well as a pantry which looks as large as our bedrooms; perfect for storing all those baking necessities.

There's also a gorgeous breakfast room right at the back of the kitchen, which is something we never thought we needed until now. We imagine that plenty of food-related innuendos were uttered in the bright and airy room which features French doors which open right out into the landscaped grounds of the quaint backgarden.

The spacious 3,455 sqft home, which also recently appeared on BBC2's Mary Berry Story, was the celebrity baker's home for 20 years.

Mary and her husband Paul bought the property in 1970 and are believed to have sold it in 1988.

It also features a large reception hall, dining room, drawing room and snug, as well as a coach house in the grounds.

There's a similar cream colour theme on the first floor which gives the sprawling home a serene feel. The master bedroom offers a working fireplace and deep bay sash windows.

The period-style bathroom is also a big draw features separate double-length rain shower, bespoke storage, dark plank flooring... and the cherry on top? A freestanding roll-top bath.
