- The story of this remarkable house and of its creator, whose influence is as strong today as ever
Sir John Soane was one of Britain's most influential architects when he designed and built Pitzhanger Manor between 1800 and 1804. He intended this country estate to reflect his new-found social status and to showcase both his skills as an architect and his eclectic collection of art and antiquities. Newly conserved and returned to his original design, Pitzhanger is a rare London example of a spectacular Soane building. This guide tells the story of this remarkable house and of its creator, whose influence is as strong today as ever.
