Stratton Park. By George Dance the Younger, 1803. Of the house only the portico survives, with its mighty Tuscan columns and its pediment. Dance must have been fully aware of the Ledoux style in Paris. The portico has been made wonderfully resourcefully into a piece of scenery of a house built in 1963-5 to the design of Stephen Gardiner & Christopher Knight. The axis of the portico is continued in an oblong pond, and then the lush conservatory of the house ... The conservatory is steel-framed, the rest brick. ...
