A Guide to Places with Pictures and Stories from Life

Osterley Park House

Osterley Park House was entirely redesigned by architect Robert Adam over a period of twenty years beginning in 1761 on behalf of the Childs family.   Although the the house is not entirely full of artifacts, it is one of the most sumptuous that I have visited.  The gardens can be found here and the flowers here.    Admission times, prices and further information can be found here.

Unfortunately the upstairs rooms were closed during my visit, but here are the downstairs rooms.  The lighting was little dull in places, so it has been raised a little.

    The Osterley Park House is picture perfect and your images are excellent. This reminds me somewhat of the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.

    • Thanks for dropping by. I think in past days dress and decor did tend to follow a one style per period. Not like the great variety we have now. 🙂

  4. I think those huge urn/vases are the ultimate in stately home bling. As in, what could you possibly use them for? I am looking at a cover of Henry James’s What Maisie Knew which has a big one of those in the background.
