Description

After being deserted for four decades, sixteenth-century English country house St. Giles House undergoes a thorough restoration from roof, structural walls, and interiors (including furnishings, decorative elements, and works of art) to landscape, lake, shell-lined grotto, and outbuildings. The history of the Ashley-Cooper family is described along with the evolution of the house and grounds, as well as the saga in bringing the grand house back to life.
