Lanhydrock House - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (452 words)
In 1620, wealthy merchant Sir Richard Robartes acquired the estate and began building Lanhydrock House, designed to a four-sided layout around a central courtyard, and constructed of grey granite.
The second Lord Robartes (later the 6th Viscount Clifden) rebuilt the house to meet the needs of his large family, appointing local architect Richard Coad to design and supervise most of the work, Coad having worked as assistant to George Gilbert Scott on earlier work (1857) at Lanhydrock.
In 1953, the house and approximately 400 acres (1.6 kmĀ²) of parkland were given to the National Trust by the 7th Viscount Clifden.
