Summary : Built between 1727 and 1729 as a hunting lodge, designed by Henry Herbert (Earl of Pembroke) for George I. The lodge was completed for George II following the death of George I in 1727. In the 1750s the house was improved and enlarged for Princess Amelia, and between 1761 and 1767 the house was upgraded by the then Ranger of the park the Earl of Bute. In 1801 the house was given to Henry Addington, who was at that time Prime Minister, and the house was considerably upgraded. The architects were James Wyatt and John Nash and much of the work was supervised by the King. Shortly after 1805 the grounds were landscaped by Humphry Repton. Repairs and additions were also made in 1844, 1869, 1909 and 1927. In 1954 the house was leased to The Royal Ballet School, several alterations have been carried out in order to adapt the house to its current use. A stone and brick building with a green slate roof.
