Old Buckenham Hall, Brettenham
The Hall is now a day and boarding school for children up to 13 years.
Formerly Brettenham Hall. A large red brick mansion probably of C16
origin but extensively added to or rebuilt in the first part of the C19
when it was altered in preparation for the residence of Joseph Bonaparte,
Ex-King of Naples and Spain, and brother of the first Napoleon. It stands
in a park of about 150 acres and is approached by an avenue of oak trees.
The south front is mainly 2 storeyed and the north front has various
blocks of 2, 3 and 4 storeys, with parapets and Dutch gables. The west
end of the south front has a large bay with 3 windows, a panelled parapet
and a ground storey loggia with 7 Roman Doric plain columns and a triglyph
frieze. The north-east front is of earlier date with parapet and Dutch
gable. The east wing and tower on the north front was built in 1903.
The windows generally are double-hung sashes with glazing bars. There
are a number of chimney stacks with octagonal shafts, moulded caps and
bases. This information was extracted from this website >LinkExternal link
