Downton Abbey is a famous example of a Jacobethan-style house (albeit on a spectacularly large scale). Highclere has around 200 bedrooms and a vast list of other rooms which would have left the ‘below stairs’ staff run ragged. Highclere is symmetrical and has huge towers (Elizabethan) but also has a series of flat roofs, open parapets and balustrades and is – unbelievably – even more impressive on the inside (Jacobean). Learn more about the Jacobethan style in our free ebook.
Built in red brick, Sandringham is another building belonging to the Jacobethan style. When it was badly damaged by fire in 1892, it was enlarged. A Jacobethan front porch and carrstone conservatory were added and the house was reimagined with nods to nearby Blickling. Sandringham has two long symmetrical main facades, gables, bay windows, turrets, onion-shaped roofs and tall, ornamental chimneys. Learn more about the Jacobethan style in our free ebook.
