Childwickbury Manor

From Academic Kids

A Manor in Hertfordshire, England. Previous owners were Henry Hayman Toulmin, a wealthy ship owner and High Sheriff of Hertfordshire and mayor of St. Albans, who bought the estate from Joshua Lomax in 1854 and sold it to Sir John Blundell Maple around 20 years later.

Racehorse owner Jack Joel bought the estate (manor and associated stud farm farm) around 1929. It remained in the Joel family until 1978, when the stud and the manor were sold separately.

It was advertised thus:

“The Manor House, mainly 18th century has 12 Reception Rooms, 18 Bed and Dressing Rooms, 11 Staff Bedrooms, and 10 Bathrooms. Immaculate Timbered Grounds. Walled Garden. Courtyard with Garaging and Flat. Estate Office. Victorian Dairy House with about 19 Acres [77,000 m²]. Two Coach House Cottages with Magnificent Stable Yard with Paddock and Woodland 16 Acres [65,000 m²]. Cheapside and Shafford Farms, 2 Well Equipped Corn and Stock Farms with about 724 Acres [2.9 km²]. 146 Acres [591,000 m²] of Timbered Parkland, 37 Acres [150,000 m²] of Railed Paddock and 104 Acres [421,000 m²] of valuable Commercial Timber”. In addition there were “18 Attractive Houses and Cottages, some with Paddocks. Old Mill and other Buildings for conversion, Stud Buildings, 30 Loose Boxes, Potential Riding School, and fishing in River Ver and Mill Race. Total 1,100 Acres [4.5 km²]”

The stud was sold to the Marquesa de Moratella.

Film director Stanley Kubrick bought the manor in 1978. He used the estate as both a home and a nerve center for his film productions. He lived there until his death in 1999 and is interred in the grounds.
