Harewood House




Harewood House (pronounced /ˈhɑː(r)wʊd/, as if written Harwood) is a country house located in Harewood (pronounced as if written Hairwood), near Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.
The house was built from 1759 to 1771 for Edwin Lascelles, whose family had bought the estate after making its fortune in the West Indies through Customs positions, slave trading and lending money to planters. The house was designed by the architects John Carr and Robert Adam. Much of the furniture is by the eighteenth century English furniture designer Thomas Chippendale, who came from nearby Otley.
Lancelot "Capability" Brown designed the grounds to which Sir Charles Barry added a grand terrace, in 1844.
