ST MICHAELS MOUNT

DESCRIPTION + /

The house at St Michael's Mount was converted from a fort after the Civil War. Much was extended and remodelled, ultilizing some of the monastic features including the monks refectory which was converted into the Chevy Chase Room which features a 17th century plaster frieze. The Lady Chapel was remodelled and now contains the Blue Drawing Room with 18th century Gothic style plasterwork. In circa 1826 the outer defences on the north and east sides were remodelled to provide walks around the Lady Chapel and front of the church. The modifications during this period greatly increased the accommodation, reroofing and reflooring of the old fabric. The Armoury and Sir John's Room were constructed in their present form in 1877 and had previously been used as the kitchen quarters.
