I believe that some Pratt designed this 17th century ostentatious and elitist abode.
Chris: Well researched Ole Bean: -

The house was built between 1663 and 1665 by Ralph Bankes, son of Sir John Bankes, to a design by the architect Sir Roger Pratt. It is a rectangular building with two main storeys, attics and basement, modelled on Chevening in Kent. The gardens and parkland were laid down at the same time, including some of the specimen trees that remain today. Various additions and alterations were made to the house over the years and the estate remained in the ownership of the Bankes family from the 17th to the late 20th century.
It certainly is!
Chris: No question..

Kingsion Lacy, I believe. Not been there for some time now. I think this was the home of the Bankes family after Corfe Castle got wrecked.
Chris: Yes indeed, a lovely place and one easy to get to from Bath
