As his income rose, Blathwayt set about remodeling the Elizabethan manor house into the house we see today, using an architect S. Hauduroy for the west front, and the King's architect William Talman for the east front. He also set about redesigning the grounds into formal gardens with cascades, parterres and forest walks. But by the time this work was completed around 1717, the style was already going out of fashion and the gardens had disappeared within 100 years.
