Here's a rather nice painting that sold at the Kingham and Orme auction today. This unidentified landscape, featuring a timber framed country house and garden, sold for £17,000 over its £400 - £500 estimate. It looks like it may date to the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

A fun appeal has been made on the Country Houses of the UK and Ireland Facebook page if anyone can identify the house. Might a reader of AHN have any idea, perhaps?

Here is a closeup of the house featured within the painting:

Update - AHN reader David Bailey has gotten in touch to make the suggestion of Packwood House in Warwickshire. The gables do look remarkably similar, and have undergone restoration in recent times of course.
