We walked around Oldway Mansion some years ago and it was beautiful with so much to see and so much history. Isaac Merritt had this built for himself and his French wife.

The book is attractively illustrated with historic photos of the Mansion in its landscaped setting, plus the Singer family who lived there. The author makes revealing comparisons between Oldway and its source of inspiration, Versailles
