Knole Mansion

Built in 1903 by Thoroughbred race horse owner and breeder, Herman Duryean, "Knole" was purchased in 1910 by business magnate Henry Phipps as a wedding gift for his daughter Helen's marriage to Bradley Martin. The Martin family owned it for nearly an entire century before it was sold in 2004 for $11 million, following the death of Esmond Martin. It is said to be deserted today.

The Palladian-style mansion was designed by Thomas Hastings of the Manhattan-based architectural firm Carrere and Hastings. It has 40 rooms, 17 fireplaces and 10 bedrooms. It was used as a backdrop for the movies such as "Arthur," "Reversal of Fortune," "The Night We Never Met," "The Associate" and "Look At Me" in the 1980s and 1990s.
