The Great Room - Marble Hill house - taken from the guide book





The Great Room provides the grand finale to a crescendo in English Palladian design that begins with the villa`s setting, its exterior elevations, and continues with the visitor`s route through the hall and up the staircase. Its sheer scale comes as a surprise in this compact house while the lavish gilded and carved ornament and fitted paintings seem equally in contrast to the sober decor seen downstairs.

In this purpose-built house, conceived for the sociable retirement of the Prince of Wales`s mistress, the Great Room would have been the one `state room` - the focus of Mrs Howard`s resources, where she could hold court with her many intellectual admirers.

The room was once furnished with four marble-topped peacock side tables [one of which has been rediscovered and returned to the room].

The whole `piano nobile` would have been open to view, as a suite of rooms through which guests would have paraded, admiring beds bedecked with damask, matching curtains, lacquered chinoiserie furniture and porcelain. After some musical entertainment or dancing, guests would have gone downstairs to dine, and end the evening over cards, backgammon, port and walnuts.

This marble topped side table and gilded mirror was added to the Dining Room in the Winter of 2008/9. It is the perfect place for flowers and seems to compliment the 20-armed chandelier perfectly.
