Coleton Fishacre. Built in 1923-6 by Oswald Milne for Rupert D’Oyly Carte, whose father Richard had been the impresario behind the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan. The house is strongly influenced by architects of the Arts and Crafts movement . There is almost no decoration on the outside of the house, apart from the wrought-iron weathervane supplied by Negretti & Zambra, and the stone sundial on the garden front, which was carved  in the style of the pharaoh Tutankhamun, whose tomb had been discovered in 1922. The interiors evoke the modernity of the Jazz Age with Art Deco details. The furnishing – a mixture of Baroque and East Asian pieces – was typical of the 1920s.
