A four-bedroom cottage built by the Rothschild family banking dynasty in the 19th century has gone on the market for £1.85million.
Thrift Cottage in Tring, Hertfordshire, boasts a 56-foot swimming pool and hot tub, as well as a large conservatory and a Japanese garden with interlinking ponds filled with koi carp.
It was erected by the bankers, who ran their business in the area during the Second World War, after Lionel de Rothschild bought the Tring Park Mansion and estate as a wedding present for his son, Nathaniel.
The 17th century house was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the same man who drew the plans for St Paul’s cathedral and the monument to the Wren library at Cambridge University.

They first came to Hertfordshire in 1838, when Nathan de Rothschild started renting the Tring Park mansion as a summer home.
Lord Rothschild’s family lived and grew up at the park until the death of Lady Rothschild in 1935. It was then used by the bank during the Second World War before being taken over as an Arts Educational School.
The Woodland Trust said that after the Rothschilds purchased the house at auction for £230,000 – or £15million today – they made several alterations including the demolition of two outdoor pavilions.
The family left their mark on the area, with their funds being responsible for designing the local pub and setting up the area’s Natural History Museum.
