According to the UK Daily Mail, the gothic estate best known as Dr. Frank N. Furter's mansion in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and which has also been the filming location of several Hammer horror productions, is now officially up for sale.

Oakley Court, located near Hammer's historic Bray Studios (itself destined for demolition, despite much protest from Hammer fans), was a private residence until 1965, after which it became the shooting location for several Hammer films and other productions. In 1981 it reopened as a luxury hotel with 188 bedrooms, a golf course and 37 acres of landscaped gardens. But the hotel is now going out of business, so Oakley is back on the market again.

In addition to Rocky Horror (the house's most famous screen role), genre fans will no doubt recognize Oakley Court from Hammer classics like Brides of Dracula and Plague of the Zombies, and non-Hammer films like Vampyres, William Castle's remake of The Old Dark House, and the comedy Murder by Death.
 
The Daily Mail reports there are already many interested buyers, but if you're thinking of giving your accountant a call, you might want to know that the asking price has not yet been listed.
