The estate at Luscombe was the property of Charles Hoare who bought the land in 1797. In 1800 he commissioned the two great names of his day to design a house and grounds which would incorporate the latest in fashionable trends in both home and garden. The architect John Nash and the landscape gardener Humphrey Repton worked together to create a charming secluded paradise for their extravagant patron.
