John Soane's Country Home
- The story of this remarkable house and of its creator, whose influence is as strong today as ever
Newly conserved and returned to its original design, Pitzhanger Manor is a rare London example of a magnificent Soane building. This elegant guide tells the story of the house and of its remarkable creator, whose influence is as strong today as ever. Sir John Soane was one of Britain’s most influential architects when he designed and built the country estate between 1800 and 1804. In spectacular style, he intended it to reflect both his skills as an architect and his eclectic collection of art and antiquities.
This publication coincides with the house’s public reopening in Spring 2019, following a major revitalisation project.
