INTRODUCTION

St. Margaretsbury House was believed to have been built circa 1760 as a rectory mansion with latter alterations and addition by Ernest Newton in 1890. The house was noted for Newton's quality features, most of which still existed.

In 1943 the house was bought by the Hertfordshire County Council and remained in its ownership until 1993 when it was acquired by City & Country.

The main house and outbuildings were meticulously restored and converted into 5 new homes, three within the main house and two within the stables/outbuildings. The development was 'Winner of the East Hertfordshire Rural Design Award' in 1994.

Testimonial
"The key I think to finding a successful use for historic buildings is to combine pragmatism with imagination, and to support that process with expertise and sensitivity. The success which City & Country has brought to some very difficult buildings shows that their approach is not, like other developers to push for a one-size-fits-all solution, but to tailor their work in a way which retains all the character of those buildings while respecting the built heritage."

Dr Lee Proseer, Curator (Historic Buildings), Kensington Palace and Kew Palace
