Architectural History

Danson House: The Anatomy of a Georgian Villa tells the story of the house, the estate, its owners, and its restoration by English Heritage between 1995 and 2004 after a long period of neglect.

Written by two specialists who were closely involved in the conservation and repair work, it explains how the building evolved from the start of construction in 1762, as wings were added and then demolished, and how the interiors were later modified to accommodate Victorian standards of comfort.

Restoring these interiors to their appearance when the house was finished in the late 1760s has revealed Danson House as one of the glories of Georgian domestic architecture.

  • Offers a unique insight into the restoration of a superb example of domestic Georgian architecture
  • Written by two experts who were closely involved with the restoration work
  • Includes many beautiful photographs and reconstruction drawings
