Like Orson Welles' masterpiece, Gwynne's first work is his best and for many of the same reasons. Because his parents were his clients, he didn't have to compromise like he would for commercial clients. Realize too that The Homewood doesn't look exactly like it did...More

Fine example of 1930s innovative house design tucked away in beautiful gardens. Original period furnishings well presented by knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides.

Not what people think of with the National Trust since its a 1930s example of an early modernist house. But what an example! Money was no object here and the rooms are lavishly furnished in iconic furniture and art from 30s to 70s. No flower...More
