About Umberslade Estate

Umberslade Estate is a 17th-century mansion converted into residential apartments situated in Nuthurst near Tanworth in Arden, Warwickshire. It is a Grade II* listed building. The old manor house was replaced between 1695 and 1700 when Smith of Warwick built the new mansion for Andrew Archer, Member of Parliament for Warwickshire. The estate passed to his son Andrew Archer, 2nd Baron Archer, after whose death in 1778 it was ultimately settled on his daughter Sarah, Countess of Plymouth.
