But Jamie is said to be “spooked” by the strange goings on in the nursery.A source said: “It’s an amazing place and the whole family fell in love with it at first viewing.
“The only thing Jamie wasn’t so sold on was the top-floor nursery which is said to be haunted, and has put off several perspective buyers.
“There’s a rocking horse there which, legend has it, starts rocking and creaking during the night.”
The 70-acre Essex estate also boasts a six-bed farmhouse, three-bed lodge, converted stables and a cart shed.

The source added: “Jamie plans on converting a couple of the outhouse rooms into a mega-kitchen from which he can film shows and hold masterclasses.”
The manor house dates back to 1570 and had been owned by the same aristocratic family since the 1700s.
The move comes after Jamie was forced to plough £13million of his own money into his struggling Italian restaurant chain.
Last year he reported losses of £20million and shut 12 branches.
