The Gregynog Hall Of Tregynon

The historic Gregynog Hall in the village of Tregynon, in Wales, UK, is a large country mansion whose brilliant black-and-white timber-framed fa├žade is actually made of concrete.

The original house dated back to the 12th century, and was made of actual wood, but when it was rebuilt in the 1840s by Charles Hanbury-Tracy, the first Baron of Sudeley, it was designed to resemble the half-timbered architecture of a Montgomeryshire farmhouse.
