Ardington House

About

Home of the Baring family. Early 18thC beautifully symmetrical house with unusually fine brickwork. The entrance is dominated by the Imperial staircase - 2 flights of stairs coming back into one. These are very rare and the Ardington staircase is an exceptional example.

The hall and dining-room have original panelling. Cornices and woodwork in the hall are perfect examples and the dining-room has a fine plasterwork ceiling. Attractive garden, river and stable yard.
