Richard Walker

Country house


Patching, Arun (Sussex)

Purchased 1st Jan 1800 £115,000


Bought by Richard Walker in 1800. He immediately instituted alterations to the house under the direction of the architect, George Byfield (c.1753-1801), adding a conservatory, a drawing room and dining room, though these seem not to have been completed by the time of his death in 1801. In a codicil to his will Walker asks his executors to complete the interior work in ‘a plain and neat’ way so that the house could become the residence of his wife.
