Product description

Review

"Readers not familiar with Henbury will be surprised to discover the Palladian-style house was built in 1986. As Jeremy Musson explains, it is a house built by dreamers, country gentlemen aiming to recapture the magic of a bygone age." * House & Garden * "The death of beautiful new country houses has been exaggerated - as you will discover on reading Henbury: An Extraordinary House." * The Oldie * "This beautiful book pays splendid tribute to the finest late 20th-century Classical house in England...a fascinating record of a unique building, as well as a visual treat." -- John Martin Robinson * Country Life * "Beautifully illustrated, full of wonderful photography, drawings, letters and portraits." -- Timothy Brittain-Catlin * Apollo * "This handsome book...written by architectural historian Jeremy Musson, and richly illustrated, tells the story of the house, from the twinkle in Sebastian's eye that was his first idea for a new building on the site of a demolished 17th-century mansion, to the details of its interior decoration by David Mlinaric...there is space for digressions via the history of the De Ferranti family, the work of Palladio and a close examination of how the design for the house evolved." * World of Interiors *
