Jewel of the Nile - Fancy this stunning home on Pharoahs island in the Thames - gifted to Admiral Nelson after his victory at the Battle of the Nile 1798.<br />
<br />
The Edwardian property on Pharaoh's Island near Shepperton Lock which comes with its own swimming pool and guesthouse can only be accessed by boat, via an exclusive 90ft mooring. <br />
<br />
It was used for the shooting of two John Boorman films, Hope and Glory (1987), which was Academy Award nominated for Best Picture, and Queen and Country (2014). <br />
<br />
The island acquired its 'Pharaoh' name as it was gifted to Lord Nelson after he triumphed in the Battle of the Nile (1798). He used it as a fishing retreat and the island is now home to 23 glamorous properties.
