An important Grade I listed Georgian country house within protected parkland.
Trafalgar Park is an exceptional property, with a fascinating history and a unique architectural provenance. The present house is primarily the work of two architects with the central villa completed in 1733, for Sir Peter Vanderput, under the guidance of John James of Greenwich. The North and South wings were added in 1766 during the ownership of Henry Dawkins and were designed by John Wood the Younger, best known for the Royal Crescent in Bath. Dawkins commissioned his friend Nicholas Revett, to design the Portico, interiors for the North Wing and a number of chimney pieces. Revett is considered by many to have influenced some of the finest Greek Revivalist interiors in England. Dawkins also commissioned the fashionable Italian painter G B Cipriani to paint the scenes in his Music Room, now known as the Cipriani Room.
After Dawkins’ death the house was purchased by the Lords of the Treasury, as a gift for the heirs of Admiral Viscount Nelson and the name was changed to ‘Trafalgar’ to commemorate his great naval victory of 1805. The first Nelson resident was the Admiral’s brother in 1813 who had been elevated Earl Nelson; Trafalgar Park passed through his descendants until the mid 20th Century.
