In search of a coun­try clas­sic

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

Coun­try Life and Sav­ills prop­erty agency are launch­ing a search for Bri­tain’s favourite coun­try houses. Os­car-win­ning writer Ju­lian Fel­lowes, the cre­ative force be­hind ITV1’s Down­ton Abbey, is one of the judges, and re­veals his own favourite house is High­clere Cas­tle. He says: “De­signed by Sir Charles Barry in the first years of Queen Vic­to­ria’s reign, High­clere is an ex­tra­or­di­nary Gothic state­ment of English aris­to­cratic con­fi­dence.”

Nom­i­na­tions will be in­vited for pri­vately-owned fam­ily prop­er­ties in a ru­ral set­ting.
