The south pavilion of the present house is the original brick building, one and a half storeys high, first occupied by Jefferson in 1770.
A new building was completed in 1899, the magnetic pavilion lying some 400 yds.
A fine pavilion or kiosk, named de l'Etoile, has also survived.
Of these the most remarkable is the Pavilion, built as a residence for the prince regent (afterwards George IV.) and remodelled in 1819 by the architect, John Nash, in a grotesque Eastern style of architecture.
It was paved with large flagstones and in the centre was a beautiful kiosk or pavilion, covered with gold and raised over the reservoir of water for ablutions.
