Punchcard No.
Broadlands House. Rebuilt in 1767, this is a fine example of the Palladian style. It has two storeys and an attic and comprises a large rectangular block of colour-washed brick with stone dressings and plinth. The main elevation is of nine bays with a central Ionic portico of four columns with entablature and pediment. The portico is approached by a flight of steps between flanking bastion walls. The windows have stone architrave surrounds, those on the ground floor being crowned with alternate hipped and curved pediments. The mansion and its grounds, including an Orangery, also built in the classical style, were designed by 'Capability' Brown. Broadlands stands on a rise looking over the river to the water-meadows. It was once the home of Lord Palmerston and Lord Louis Mountbatten.     T. & C.P. Act
