This is the first book ever published on Winfield House, the official residence of the American Ambassador to the Court of St James. James Mortimer's glorious photographs reveal every aspect of this elegant London house and garden. Maria Tuttle, the wife of the present Ambassador, provides personal insights into the life of the house and its role as a tool of modern public diplomacy, while the distinguished architectural historian Marcus Binney contributes an informative introduction to the history and design of this remarkable house.
