Chateau Impney is an imposing 19th century house near Droitwich, England. It was built for industrialist John Corbett in the style of a Louis XIII French chateau. Corbett's wife, Hannah Eliza O'Meara, was of mixed French/ Irish descent and he built the house in the 1870s, as a cost of GBP 247,000, to satsify her nostaglia for Paris. Sadly, she never lived in the house, prefering one of Corbett's properties in Towyn, North Wales. ...more on Wikipedia about "Chateau Impney"
Hagley Hall and its park are among the supreme achievements of eighteenth-century English architecture and landscape gardening. They remain largely the creation of one man, George Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton (1709–73), secretary to Frederick, Prince of Wales, poet and man of letters and briefly Chancellor of the Exchequer. Before the death of his father in 1751, he began to landscape the grounds in the new "picturesque" style, and between 1756 and 1760 it was he who was responsible for the building of the house as it is seen today. ...more on Wikipedia about "Hagley Hall"
