2. Built by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1903 and one of his best houses. Large H-shaped house of Cotswold manor type, built of coursed Hythe sandstone, quarried locally. This stone is so soft and has weathered so much that the house would appear a genuine C16 building from the outside if it were in the stone country. Two storeys and attic. Nine windows. The outer wings have gables. Two gables between these wings. In the centre is a large projecting five-sided bay with 5 windows, each of 4 tiers of 2 lights, which light the music-room that contains the main staircase of the house and a gallery. Tiled roof. Casement windows. The north or entrance front has a projecting porch in the centre with 2 storeys over it. Chimney breast at the ends of the wings. Service wing attached.
