Cliveden House, Buckinghamshire, 1924-1926. Cliveden is set amid 376 acres of magnificent formal gardens and parklands. Now a luxury hotel and National Trust property, the house was built by Charles Barry for the Duke of Sutherland in 1851. Queen Victoria, a frequent guest, was not amused in 1893 when the house was bought by William Waldorf Astor, America's richest citizen. When he gave it to his son and daughter-in-law in 1906 Cliveden became the hub of a hectic social whirl where guests included everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Winston Churchill, and President Roosevelt to George Bernard Shaw. A print from Hutchinson's Britain Beautiful, edited by Walter Hutchinson, volume I, 1924-1926.
