Packwood House

Paperback

Small in scale, it was perfect in detail, furnished with exquisite taste and its garden planted with riotous colour. Packwood stands today as Baron Ash arranged it, precisely and exactly, awaiting your applause.

Packwood is an ancient manor house of Warwickshire; the home for over 300 years of an aspirational gentry family, yet its current form and character is almost entirely the creation of another aspirant owner, the last to hold Packwood in private hands. Graham Baron Ash aesthete, collector, historian and lifelong bachelor modelled Packwood as his ideal of the perfect English Country House. Small in scale, it was perfect in detail, furnished with exquisite taste and its garden planted with riotous colour. Packwood stands today as Baron Ash arranged it, precisely and exactly, awaiting your applause.
