The Oldest Georgian Home In Banbury...

Past occupants after 1811 were Col & Mrs Edmunds of the late "Hunt Edmunds Brewery" Banbury, with just the one sibling to enjoy the vast space here but they also employed a chauffeur & gardener to live in the attached accommodation behind. Archives from the local Banbury Museum denote this home to be the finest Georgian home in town containing elaborate works from two periods that were only a generation apart!
