A fine red brick Tudor manor house built by Sir Thomas Gresham and remodelled inside and out for the upwardly mobile Child family in the 18th century by John Adam.
Stunning Georgian interiors include the austere entrance hall of 1767 and the tapestry room, hung with crimson coloured Boucher medallion tapestries specially commissioned from the Gobelin factory in Paris and lovingly tended over the years by the owners and family retainers.
Clocking in at 130 feet, the 'Long Gallery' is aptly named and is now hung with an assemblage of 17th and 18th-century Venetian paintings. The house is set in 357 acres of parkland with lakes and a fine collection of various species of oak tree. The recently restored 18th-century pleasure gardens boast a walled vegetable garden, an American garden, a Winter Garden and, in spring, the bluebell bordered Long Walk.
