HISTORY: The Eythrope Park estate adjoins Waddesdon Manor (q.v.), the French Renaissance style country house for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild. The Rothschild family acquired the Eythrope estate in the C19 and Alice de Rothschild carried out building works, the Pavilion, Grotto and former stable block of which survive (q.v.); the Eythrope mansion was demolished c.1810. Drawings survive for a Gothic style building, dated July 3rd 1751 for 'Sr. William Stanhope's Ethrupe' in the British Museum, that strongly resemble the facade of the present Eythrope Park Farmhouse, with its castellations, central arch and southern wing removed.
