This Georgian manor house has to be seen to be believed

Step inside Trafalgar House, a home as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside

Situated on the edge of the picturesque and popular village of Heighington, County Durham, Trafalgar House is a stunning Grade-II listed family home. It's currently on the market with Savills, with a guide price of £1.15 million.

The house was originally commissioned for Captain William Pryce Cumby, the heroic commander of HMS Bellerophon during the battle of Trafalgar. Thus earning its grand name, Trafalgar House.
