A faithful and inspired rendition of Dudley House, a rare Park Lane survivor, the only great aristocratic house in the capital from the 18th/19th centuries that is now fully occupied as a family home—an exceptional residence, as lavishly restored in accordance with its owner’s wishes. To give the most comprehensive idea of the beauty, style, and treasures of Dudley House, this book is a room-to-room visit of the place, revealing both the overall harmony of the house and the wealth of detail in its interior layout and furniture. A fresh view of Dudley House by contrasting overall perspectives and close-ups and by varying angles and viewpoints to recreate the essence of the house.
