Property description

A 19th century four double bedroom detached Rothschild cottage set in 1.84 acres of established and mature grounds and with an indoor swimming pool complex.

Thrift Cottage was built by the Rothschild family circa 1877 as part of Home Farm on the Tring Park Estate and was primarily the residence of the farm manager. The property combines period features with modern additions. In addition to the 56 ft. swimming pool complex, the current owners have added a 35 ft. x 22 ft. garage complex with a games room above, and there is ample parking space available adjacent to the main house. The private gardens have been landscaped to provide a park-like setting with a variety of mature trees - including ornamental maples - providing colour throughout the year. There is also a Japanese style garden with interlinking ponds which are home to koi carp. Thrift Cottage is approximately 1 mile from Tring High Street and 2.5 miles from Tring railway station.

Ground Floor Accommodation

The accommodation in the main house includes a sitting room measuring approximately 435 sq. ft. and a conservatory which measures approximately 352 sq. ft. and overlooks the gardens. There is also a dining room (which is currently used as an office), a snug, a modern kitchen and a gym - with an adjacent shower room - which has the potential for conversion to a single bedroom.

Leisure Facilities

Built by the current owners, the detached 35 ft. x 22 ft. garage complex with games room above has the potential for conversion to an annexe subject to the relevant planning permissions being granted. The current owners also added the 56 ft. swimming pool complex which includes a heated indoor pool and a hot tub.

First Floor Accommodation

On the first floor, the master bedroom has a four piece en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms - one of which has a built-in wardrobe - and a three piece family bathroom. The first floor also has an eaves store which measures approximately 172 sq. ft.


The property is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is approximately 15 minutes' walk from Tring High Street. Tring has a variety of shops, boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants and public houses. There is also schooling for all ages including Tring Upper School and Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. Tring railway station has services to Euston taking 37 minutes. The M25 is approximately 20 minutes’ drive away via the A41.
