Lake View House

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Lake View House is the childhood home of Henry Handel Richardson, pseudonym of ‘The Getting of Wisdom’ author’s Ethel Florence Richardson, who immortalised her experiences in Chiltern in her popular ‘The Fortunes of Richard Mahony’ trilogy.

This charming red-brick house is furnished in period style, recreating a romantic lakeside country villa residence in a prosperous mining town, and contains a small collection of Richardson memorabilia.
