ROTHSCHILD BANKING DYNASTY KNEW THE IMPORTANCE OF THRIFT
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.
