Pitzhanger Manor, Ealing :: Shared Description

Pitzhanger Manor was built as his country house by the architect Sir John Soane in 1800, partly as a showcase for his collections and also to show off architectural possibilities to clients. George Dance designed an extension in 1768, Soane worked on this as a 15 year old apprentice. In 1900 it was sold to Ealing Council and used as the public library until 1984, then as a museum. The grounds became the public Walpole Park. From 2011 there was a major restoration of the park and manor; the library extension on the site of the kitchen was replaced by a gallery.
