It is a shame that practically all of Ralph Dutton's Italian paintings and English furniture were destroyed by fire, and he had to start again, not only rebuilding the House, but refurnishing too!

Well, it is very nice inside. The furniture is mainly French now, and the painting's are Italian. There are many pieces of beautiful furniture, and stunning ornament's. The Library still seems to be fairly well stocked. Ralph Dutton was an author and wrote many books.

There was a set of paintings of the four seasons by Jacob de Wit, depicting cherubs painted in a three dimensional monochrome style.
Lovely stucco and fresco ceilings, beautiful drapes and carpet's, this was one lovey House!
