Exbury House

By Possum  
We visited the gardens at Exbury House today, one of our favourite places. The estate stands at the edge of the River Beaulieu, and the magnificent gardens were the result of the vision of Lionel de Rothschild. The neo-Palladian house was designed in the 1920s, built around an existing structure and faced with Portland stone. It is still home to members of the Rothschild family.
Again, this is a bit of a departure for me, but I just loved the warmth created by the sunshine on the Portland stone facade and portico.

Thanks for looking; all C & C welcome.

Allie this is SUPERB....... I think the departure suits you. The composition/detail/tones and lighting on this beautifully structured building is perfect and that blue sky is the perfect natural b/ground.... Love it.

thought it was your place at first LOL, like the shot... I like places like this as they are so full of interest.

WOW! I love the work you've done on this Allie. I bet it started out as an old wooden hut, but with your magic touch on the puter, well, what a result!
