Woodperry House
A view along the formal drive from the west.
Woodperry is a grand house in the Palladian (symmetric) style. The earliest parts of the building date from 1728 (the design is attributed to William Townsend) and extended at various times, principally in 1880. It was originally built for John Morse, a London goldsmith and banker. [source: LinkExternal link ]

The name 'Woodperry' is derived from the Old English wudu-pyrige, 'the pear-tree near the wood'. There was formerly a Woodperry village that disappeared some time after 1540; there were excavations in the 1950s. [source: LinkExternal link ]

As of 2007 it was owned by financier Pierre Lagrange.
