Goodwood House

Readers might like the article in the Daily Telegraph with some terrific pictures of Goodwood House and its contents.

Do have a peek and online tour of the House here.

Goodwood is the country seat of His Grace the Duke of Richmond and Gordon; and his heir, Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara.

Buying back furniture sold at auction, restoring picture-hangs and reverting to original colour schemes were all part of Lord March's revamp of his family seat, Goodwood House.

Today Charles March, who will in time succeed his father as the 11th Duke, shares Goodwood House with his wife, Janet; their four children, Charles Lord Settrington; the Hon William, Lady Eloise and the Hon Frederick; and Lord March’s daughter by his previous marriage, Lady Alexandra.

Their home occupies a self-contained wing of the house, not so much a private apartment as a house-attached-to-a-house. It has formed the family’s living quarters since the end of the 18th century.
