ABOUT HUDOWRTH TOWER Hudworth Tower dates to the early 19th century and is set within approximately 4 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens with panoramic views across open countryside and sea. This stunning 5 bedroom home exceeds 7500 sq ft and includes a superb leisure wing. The intriguing history of this unique home includes former owner Charles Otto Trechmann (1851 - 1917) who studied chemistry for two years under Robert Bunsen and earned his PhD and acquired an interest in mineralogy and crystallography, and began building a collection, he also found time to publish 20 scientific papers. By the time of his death his mineral collection numbered around 5,000 choice, well-crystallized specimens HOUSED IN TWO WELL-MADE CABINETS IN HIS HOME, CALLED HUDWORTH TOWER in Castle Eden. In 1892 the original part of Hudworth Tower was designed and built by Trechmann where he continued to live until he died in 1917. Over later years Hudworth Tower was extended and improved and benefits from a total refurbishment in 2000 to create the superb residence it is today with more interesting history to tell, like the day movie star Errol Flynn popped in for tea...

An opportunity to own a piece of History at its finest. Hudworth Tower is situated in a private tranquil setting overlooking stunning countryside and sea views. The gated entrance accesses the tree lined drive leading to this imposing home complete with detached double garage and storage which has been built to accommodate the largest of cars and also benefits from reinforced roof trusses, enabling it to be converted into a separate annexe subject to planning.
