The leafy English village of Linkenholt with its 21 cottages and a manor house has found a buyer.

Real estate agent Tim Sherston said Thursday that the village, which had an asking price of 23 million pounds ($35 million) and was for sale as a whole, is off the market. But he could not say who the buyer was nor how much was paid because of a confidentiality agreement.

Linkenholt is about 70 miles west of London. The village is made up of 21 cottages, a manor house, plus a cricket pitch and accompanying pavilion. There are also 1,500 acres of farmland and 425 acres of woods.

The only part of the village that was not for sale was St. Peter's Church.
