Stourhead House

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Henry Hoare bought Old Stourton House in 1717 and swiftly demolished it. He then built a Palladian villa on adjacent land and named it Stourhead. After his father's death in 1725, Henry Hoare II completed the house and filled it with treasures, which you can still discover today.

Yes, it ranks somewhere near the top Richard. If you ever get to visit, let me know and I will pop over and buy you and your wife tea and cake :-)

Thank you Derek. It's a good time to visit the grounds when the house is closed for the winter...not many people around!

Regards, Rosa.
