A seventeenth century house (by Ralph Banks) which was altered by Sir Charles Barry in the nineteenth century. It has a terrace with urns and vases overlook a vast lawn. There is also a Victorian fernery, a cedar walk, a lime avenue and a sunken garden which was made in 1906. The terrace converted Kinston Lacy from the Serpentine Style to the Landscape Style.
