A 900-year-old manor house, a seven-acre palace, a castle with its very own moat—these are homes most of us could only dream of waking up in. But for the very lucky few, these historic estates are real-life residences, often kept in one family for decades. In the new book Great Houses, Modern Aristocrats (Rizzoli, $60), journalist James Reginato tours 16 such opulent properties in Britain and Ireland, some whose interiors have never been seen before. “There is something wonderful in watching the layers of history and the passage of time—where materials age and get better with years—which one finds in these houses. You can see how each generation has put its mark on the place,” writes Viscount Linley, chairman for Christie’s in Europe, the Middle East, Russia, and India, in the foreword. Here, take a look inside six of the incredible homes featured in the book.
