This neo-Classical country house with its Victorian opulence was designed in 1860 for Charles Thelusson by Chevalier Casentini, an Italian architect, and built by Philip Wilkinson. A tour takes visitors through the billiard room, the kitchen with its cast-iron ovens and partially modernised bathrooms with an atmosphere all of their own.
