Castle Howard - near York, North Yorkshire, England. The private residence of the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years, construction of Castle Howard took over 100 years to complete beginning in 1699.

An earlier house was extensively re-modelled in the Neo-Classical style, between 1780 and 1813 by the architects Samuel Wyatt and Lewis William…
