Wanstead House, built in 1715 by Scottish architect Colen Campbell for Sir Richard Child, 3rd Baronet, was the first Palladian mansion built in England. After the notorious rake William Wellesley-Pole ruined the estate, the house's contents were sold at auction in 1825, after which the house demolished and the building materials salvaged also auctioned, raising only £10,000 of the reputed £360,000 cost of building. The surrounding grounds are now Wanstead Park.
