Castle Design: Castle Howard
Castle Howard was completed in 1712 in North Yorkshire, England. It was designed by noted architect John Vanbrugh in the English Baroque style for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle. (ABOVE) The front facade of the castle is very detailed and quite grand. I like how the center fountain shows its age as it gives the fountain character. (BELOW 1) The roof features many sculptures as well as chimney's. The dome is the key attraction, and without it the castle would not feel as grand. I love the gold detailing. (BELOW 2) The estate has multiple gardens that are wonderfully designed. From the garden you have a clear view of the castle. (BELOW 3) From this wider shot, you have a clear view of the right and left wings. Much of the castle's details are on the roof. If you happen to visit the castle, you will see many Peacocks roaming the grounds! What do you think of Castle Howard?
