An historic stately home that burned to the ground in a devastating arson attack has been put up for sale for £3m - £12m less than what it was worth.<br />
<br />
Grade I listed Parnham House, near Beaminster, Dorset, is now just a charred shell of the magnificent mansion it once was.<br />
<br />
It was destroyed in the huge blaze in April last year and its millionaire owner, hedge fund manager Michael Treichl, was arrested on suspicion of starting the fire.<br />
<br />
But while on police bail, Mr Treichl, 69, was found drowned in Lake Geneva, Switzerland, in an apparent suicide.<br />
<br />
Despite initial vows by the family that they would rebuild the 500-year-old home, receivers have been brought in by the mortgage lenders to sell what remains of the property.
