Broadwell Hill 6141

Chipping Norton, England, Gloucestershire, Cotswold

Brief Description

Broadwell Hill is surrounded by well-kept parkland and farmland with stands of mature trees and single specimens. Some of the parkland planting dates back to the late-19th century when the house was built.

History

By about 1653 Broadwell Hill was a small freehold estate owned by the Barker family. After passing through several owners the property was bought by Captain Piers Thursby who commissioned the architect Ewan Christian to build a house in the Jacobean style in 1879. The house was extended in about 1938 by Eric Cole.

Detailed Description

Sale particulars dating back to 1874 describe a small estate with a cottage, barn, yard and cattleshed, well adapted for a site for a residence.
