ROTH­SCHILD BANK­ING DY­NASTY KNEW THE IM­POR­TANCE OF THRIFT

Gloucestershire Echo - - OPEN HOUSE -

THE word cot­tage might im­ply some­thing small and homely, but when the orig­i­nal own­ers of a prop­erty was the Roth­schild fam­ily – the Euro­pean bank­ing dy­nasty – then that’s never likely to be the case. Thrift Cot­tage (there’s re­ally noth­ing thrifty about it ei­ther) was built in 1877 as part of Home Farm on the Tring Park Es­tate, Hert­ford­shire, to be lived in by the farm man­ager. The four-bed­room de­tached prop­erty, set in 1.84 acres of ma­ture grounds and now with a 56-foot in­door swim­ming pool com­plex with hot tub, is up for sale for £1.85mil­lion. It com­bines pe­riod fea­tures with mod­ern ad­di­tions such as a garage com­plex with games room above. The ground floor of the main house in­cludes a sit­ting room with con­ser­va­tory, a din­ing room, snug, mod­ern kitchen and gym with ad­ja­cent shower room which has the po­ten­tial for con­ver­sion into a fur­ther bed­room. On the first floor there is a master bed­room with en-suite, three dou­ble bed­rooms and a bath­room. Thrift Cot­tage is for sale through Michael Gra­ham agents. See michael­gra­ham. co.uk for more de­tails.
