What a beautiful historical home. From the walk from the gate the home already impresses with its beautiful vista.The intricate details, paintings, spaces make it one of the most stunning historical homes I have ever seen. The gardens are beautiful, with a huge variety of spaces - from manicured gardens to hidden passageways.
And the paintings. Goodness me there is just SO many gorgeous original oil paintings! I was so happy to find the original of John Singer Sargent's Portrait of the Acheson Sisters in Chatsworth, it was even more elegent and beautiful in real life.
I am bumping off one point of though, because there is a lot of modern paintings and sculptures incorporated in both the house and gardens. The historical house and gardens didn't blend well with the modern art for me. Like putting a Chanel Dress on a venus de milo sculpture. Sure they both look great individually, but together, not so good. This is just my personal opinion though, I am guessing some people might like it. I personally prefer the more purist vision seen more in National Trust properties.
