Burley on the Hill house survives in a prominent hilltop location although much altered after a fire in 1908. It has the remains of 17th- and 18th-century formal landscaping around the house and in the parkland and woodland, including a 17th-century avenue and bowling green. Humphry Repton produced a Red Book for the estate in the late 18th century. The site is now in multiple private ownership and the house has been converted to apartments. Pearl Finch was the descendent of the original 17th century owner for whom the house was constructed.
