Dating back to the C15th, Resoration House was converted into the impressive townhouse we see today I the late C16th and early C17th. The house was Grade 1 listed in 1950 for its architectural, lierary and historic significance, it being additionally visited by Pepys and the Satis House of Dickens’ Great Expectations. Still privately owned and maintained the sequence of rooms, the decorative schemes, the furniture, pictures and ceramics have won it universal praise and admiration. The astonishing story of the discovery and rebuilding of the renaissance water garden is unparalled in modern times.
