Palladian villa, Sussex
The new replacement house, the third house on the site in 50 years, is an elegant render and stone Palladian house. The main section of the building is arranged over two principal floors with an attic above. At each end of the principal section are double height cylindrical pavilions, from which square, single storey wings radiate. This design allows the house to make best use of the views out over the lake in the valley below. The main entrance front contains a pedimented central stone bay with pilasters in the Doric order. The rear elevation has the same central projection in the Ionic order over a rusticated stone base, reflecting its more rustic position overlooking the grounds.
