Not all is as it seems at Hinton Ampner. Following a fire in 1960, Ralph Dutton, the last owner rebuilt his home and filled it with anything Georgian he could find. Everything within the house has its own story to tell before it came to live here. He amassed a large collection, including an original Robert Adam ceiling, vast amounts of hard stone and the finest ceramics all dating back to the period he loved so much.
