Boughton Estate

Boughton Estate, Northamptonshire

This wonderful estate has been the home of the Montagus and their descendants since 1528.It started life as a simple Tudor manor, with a Great Hall at its heart and for 150 years it expanded gently, organically as various courtyards and appendages were added. Then in two decades of hectic building the long North front, where the visitor arrives, rose up, embracing State Rooms and Stables with its distinctive Mansard roof and the flavour of Versailles. For Ralph Montagu, later to be 1st Duke of Montagu , a passionate builder and patron of artists, craftsmen and decorators of every sort, this transformation was the pursuit of a dream to bring French beauty and style to an English landscape.The House & Estate boast 7 courtyards, 12 entrances, 52 chimney stacks and 365 windows. The 1.25 acres of Collyweston tile roofing blend with the great spread of lawns, lakes, woods and over 250 year old avenues stretching for many miles.
