Summary: 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.
