Architecturally, The Folly is something of an enigma, combining features which were the height of fashion in the 1670s – the alternating long and short cornerstones on the front exterior – with those of a century earlier – the ground floor windows with their semi-circular heads. These windows are also remarkable for the way in which they wrap around the corners of the house to form a near-continuous wall of glass. Light was obviously of great importance to Richard Preston.
