was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and the current house dates back to circa 1750. Its east wing was added in the 19th century. Meanwhile, the magnificent Temple Garden was built in the 1840s. The Grade II* listed property’s formal gardens include a temple and orangery.
Thomas Sheraton – 18th century furniture designer, once characterized mahogany as “best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed.” Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called “flame mahogany.”
The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree.
