Steine House around 1870

shSteine House is a building of historical and architectural value. It was designed and built for Maria Fitzherbert, the alleged wife of the Prince of Wales, later King after the death of his father George III, in 1804 by William Porden. Porden went on to design the stables and garden for the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, George IV’s summer residence. Porden’s designs of Steine House were exhibited at the Royal Academy at the time, together with designs of the Royal Pavilion.
