Is it a crazy to buy a 2005 Honda Accord with 206,000 miles on the clock?

I'm looking at a 2005 petrol Honda Accord 2.0 i-VTEC Executive with 206,000 miles on the clock. It's had two owners, the first was a major football club and it appears to be mostly motorway miles. It appears to be in great condition inside and out and was top of the range in specs when bought. From what I can see, the Honda Accord seems to be very reliable and it has eight service stamps (I'm assuming these are yearly services). the seller wants £795 and it seems a good deal to me, but the mileage worries me. Am I nuts for considering this? What should I be looking for and asking the seller? Are there any known pitfalls with the Accord? It's a private seller and I will have pretty much no comeback if I take it and it turns out to be a lemon.

It's £795. Four bottles of Vega Sicilia 1991. Probably worth the risk. The best questions to ask the vendor are "Why are you selling it?" and "Is there anything wrong with it at all?" If he then doesn't tell you of a fault he knows about he's in breach of contract.
