History

for the latest information.

The original architecture dates partially from the 12th century and has had additions in the Tudor times, Queen Anne, Regency and Victorian eras.

The Facade was built at the bequest of the first Governor of New York, Hey was also Governor of N. Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New England and New Jersey, and is generally regarded as the finest example of Queen Anne Colonial Architecture in the country, possibly one of the most beautiful houses in Britain.

Not being occupied during the war, it survived relatively unscathed, though the mystery of where the valuables, arms and armour were hidden has yet to be solved.
