Stowe House is a Grade I-listed country house located in Stowe, just outside Buckingham. It is the home of Stowe School, which has leased the building since it was founded in 1923. The present house dates from around 1683, when the central part was rebuilt by Sir Richard Temple, 3rd Baronet. The architect was William Cleare, who worked for Sir Christopher Wren. There have been considerable additions over the years under various architects, including Vanbrugh and Robert Adam. The exterior of the house has not been significantly changed since 1779, and the front of the house is 279 metres in length. This shows the main entrance together with the east wing. This is replicated at the western end.
