A pretty villa that a wealthy widow bequeathed to Benjamin Disraeli before he became Prime Minister is on the market for £1.35m.<br />
<br />
Disraeli and his wife Mary Anne developed a decade-long friendship with Sarah Brydges-Willyams after she began writing them letters, believing they might be related because of their shared Sephardic Jewish ancestry.<br />
<br />
They visited every summer for the next ten years until she died in 1863, when she bequeathed her Torquay home, Mount Braddon, to them.<br />
<br />
But the Disraelis never lived in the Devon property and sold it about two years later.<br />
<br />
Now it is an impressive seven-bedroom home with modern luxuries as well as original features.
