The most ambitious project of Henry Avray Tipping, the influential architectural editor of Country Life, Mounton was a new country house and garden, designed without limitations of expense to be the perfect expression of his immense knowledge of history, architecture, and horticulture. Featuring a wealth of previously unseen material including correspondence, articles, and illustrations, this book insightfully details the design and building of the home H. Avray Tipping created for himself. It also gives a rich and evocative portrait of Tipping and his friends, with visits from Lloyd George and from Tipping's gardening colleagues, including Harold Peto, Gertrude Jekyll, and William Robinson. Over time, the house was neglected and the magnificent gardens became overgrown. The final two chapters reveal the careful adaptation of the interiors of Mounton House and the spectacular remaking of the gardens by the renowned garden designer Arne Maynard, all fully illustrated with plans and striking new photography. This is the story of the creation, destruction, and regeneration of a singular vision.
