Richard Boyle, the third Earl of Burlington, designed Chiswick House, a romantic 18th-century villa and gardens, to evoke classical Italian themes. The house was a show piece, used for entertaining and to display the Earl’s collection of paintings, many of which remain. Next door was an older house, now demolished , where the Burlington’s actually lived although Lady Burlington did turn one room into a bedroom after the death of her husband.
