England's great landscape painter JMW Turner fulfilled his little-known architectural ambition in 1813
when he designed this small villa, Sandycombe Lodge. He and his 'old dad' used it as a rural retreat from the
London art world. The house is lightly furnished with objects from the early 19th century.
