Beautifully presented wing of a historic Tarrant mansion that has been tastefully renovated to a high standard in the prestigious St George's Hill estate.
The Tudor-style property, Thorn Hill, was divided into three separate homes in 1950, Holland Hill being one third of the original building.
Interestingly in 1931, the Earl of Dunmore, hero of the Boer War and World War One, sold Thorn Hill and it was then occupied by the German Embassy prior to WWII. It is believed to have been left fully furnished just before war was declared. Joachim von Ribbentrop, Foreign Minister of Germany between 1938 and 1945, was thought to be a frequent guest at the house.
The property has been extensively renovated throughout to a high standard, however still maintains much of its original charm and character including beautiful stained glass windows, paneling, intricate cornicing and high ceilings.
