A Charming Gothic-Style Home with Original Details

England is packed with large country estates and on the Antony estate on the border of Devon and Cornwall stands this beautiful historic country house. The 6,000 sq ft house features grand living spaces, six bedrooms, and a garden overlooking the estate’s church.

Maryfield House was built in 1847 by the Carey-Pole family, the owners of the Antony estate, to commemorate the birth of their first child. It was originally built as a vicarage but later transformed into a Gothic-style residence. In recent years, the historic house has been renovated and restored, preserving original details like the staircase with its quatrefoil carvings, substantial fireplaces with pointed arch detailing, and a screen in the study set on marble columns.
