Swakeleys

Swakeleys is, quite simply, one of the most remarkable houses in London. With its dramatic roofscape crowded with Dutch gables and towering chimneys, the house is an improbable discovery, tucked out of sight behind the quiet interwar suburbs of Ickenham. It is a remarkably complete survival of an idiosyncratically English episode in architectural history and a lavish expression of the burgeoning commercial prosperity of 17th century London.

This website provides a virtual tour of the principal rooms and the exterior, along with a history of the house and its owners.
