Cromwell House

  • Built / Designed For: Richard Sprignall

    House & Family History: Cromwell House was part of a very cosmopolitan and limited movement of the 17th century that disdained the popular Tudor architecture style, but also found the rising Palladian style too cold and severe. Cromwell House and other buildings like it (Swakeleys, Uxbridge, and Kew Palace, Richmond) blended Renaissance styles with Inigo Jones, and a pinch of panache thrown in for good measure.
