Lamb House, West Street, Rye

When William James visited Henry James here in the autumn of 1899, he described "Harry's place" as "a most exquisite collection of quaint little stage properties, three quarters of an acre of brick-walled English garden, little brick courts and out-houses, old-time kitchen and offices, paneled chambers and tiled fire-places, but all very simple and on a small scale" (111). The house is now a National Trust property.
