"The current house was built in 1790 but remodelled extensively in 1867. It was remodelled again in the Neo-Georgian style by Trenwith Wills and Lord Gerald Wellesley for Ralph Dutton between 1936 and 1939 to his vision of what it would have been like had it been built on its current scale in 1790 – a Georgian country house. It was badly damaged by fire in 1960, and restored again much as it had appeared in 1936.
Ralph Dutton, with no direct heirs, gave the estate to the National Trust, on his death in 1985."

Or the mirror and fireplace in the same room. This one of the Library I did not get how I waned as some guy decided to stand in the middle of the room gazing round at everything he read about on a flyer they hand out. Not impressed
