In the midst of fine English countryside stands a medieval hall house steeped in history. Though not nearly as grand as its famous American counterpart, the White House in Aston Munslow, Shropshire is a fascinating home that was first erected in the 14th century by the Stedman family. Their lineage would remain in situ until the property was acquired by the Pursers who later placed it in the care of a UK conservation charity, The Landmark Trust, focused on preserving properties of historical importance.
Delve Into The White House’s Fascinating History
Originally constructed in the 1300s, the White House was the home to one family for generations, the Stedman family. Throughout the centuries it has seen many architectural additions, from the beauty of the remaining cruck trusses holding up the roof, to the notable mix of period styles, such as Jacobean and Tudor, that were employed as the house grew bigger. It was in 1694 that the house was whitewashed and given its name. Available to rent as a holiday home, the house is accompanied by another white landmark, a 15th century dovecote.
