Sinopsis: Building and rebuilding their houses was one of the main concerns of the English nobility and gentry, some might say their greatest achievement. This is the first book to look at the building of country houses as a whole in the two centuries after 1660. "Creating Paradise" shows why owners embarked on building schemes, often following the Grand Tour or excursions around other houses in England; where they looked for architectural inspiration and assistance; and how the building work was actually done and what it cost. It deals not only with the grandest houses, including Holkham and Castle Howard, but also the diversity of middling ones, such as Felbrigg and Dyrham, and those of the lesser country gentry. "Creating Paradise" is an important and original contribution to its subject and a highly readable account of the attitude of the English ruling class to its most important possession.

Críticas: "This is the first book to look at the building of country houses as a whole... a highly readable account"
