In the tradition of Rizzoli’s successful Hunt Country Style and Stables, this book will appeal to homeowners with a hankering for genteel tradition and the bucolic ideal. Gentleman’s farms have a long and elevated tradition in American life, and the houses that stand on them are gracefully traditional and well-proportioned.
The Gentleman’s Farm features all-new photography offering unprecedented views of well-known historic and private homes that present a stylish, traditional aesthetic.
