BUILT IN 1684, fawley court BEARS ALL THE HALLMARKS OF THE GENIUS SIR CHRISTOPHER WREN, THE ARCHITECT OF ST PAUL'S CATHEDRAL AND HAMPTON COURT.
Fawley Court has the last word in luxurious exclusivity. Each room was designed by a leading architect of either the seventeenth or eighteenth century. The principle downstairs salon was designed by Grinling Gibbons, Wren’s master carver, and the ceiling features enchanting carvings of the prancing fallow deer so characteristic of Fawley. James Wyatt, the architect of five cathedrals and two palaces, also designed a number of rooms of equally exquisite elegance. This creativity was not limited to the house alone, between 1764 and 1766 the grounds were dramatically landscaped by renowned landscaped architect 'Capability' Brown.
Today, as a private estate, art defines the rooms. The Wyatt Room comes alive with notable modern art. Avant-garde sculpture add a surprising splash of colour to the Gibbons Room. These characteristics set Fawley Court apart from so many other stately homes: it celebrates its heritage but in the spirit of contemporary sophistication. Fawley is a delightful balance between the bold and the understated, 'Classic or Contemporary; Why Choose?'
