A hidden treasure with influence from the renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, the White House was built as a summer villa before the First World War, at the height of Edwardian exuberance, by the previous owner’s grandfather who had commissioned Lutyens to remodel his 17C house in Leicestershire, Papillon Hall. Part of the design for Papillon was incorporated into the design for the White House.
