Henbury Hall is set in under 600 acres of park and farmland with 12 acres of gardens. Several houses have stood on site and there is a house recorded here in the Domesday Book. The present house is a unique landmark house of the 20th Century which was built in the 1980's in the Palladian style, its design being based on Andrea Palladio's Villa Rotunda near Vicenza in Italy.
The house is built of french limestone from a quarry near Reims. The architect was Julian Bicknell.
