The White House is based on a palace in Poland, which was owned by Prince John Zylinski’s grandmother.
During World War II she was expelled from her palace by the Communist Government who then burnt it to the ground.
After a spell in a Concentration Camp she went to London, where her grandson John was born. Brought up on stories of this wonderful Polish Palace, he promised her when he was 6 years old that he would rebuild it.
Prince John kept his promise to his grandmother. Building work took 7 years. The White House construction was completed in May 2009.
The attention to detail in every element of this glorious house is testament to the personal pride and effort Prince Zylinski put into this Labour Of Love.
