Holdenby House, Northampton, Northamptonshire. Built in 1583 by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor & favourite of Elizabeth I - the largest private house in Elizabethan England - with 123 huge glass windows around two courtyards, specifically to honour his beloved Elizabeth. Hatton refused to live in the house prior to the Queen's first visit. In 1709 it was bought by the Duke of Marlborough, since when it has descended down the female line to the Lowther family.
