Notes NOTES: Designed originally in 1742 by Matthew Brettingham, this mansion was extended in 1780-1785 by Samuel and James Wyatt. It was gutted by fire in 1882 and by 1981 it had fallen into a state of severe disrepair, when it was acquired by Kit Martin (Historic Houses Rescue), who built a new house for himself in the central portion and converted the Wyatt additions into 20 dwellings.
