Bernham's Hill

Bernhams Hill is an house inspired by Bramshill House, a Jacobean Mansion in Hampshire.
It shows the architectural taste of the late 16th early 17th, heavily influenced by the italianate renaissance and the influence of the United Province.

I won't post a downloadable map for this one, because it is included in the darbyshire map which has evolved a lot, but I wanted to draw attention to this particular mansion, so here it is!

t's not exactly represented as the original, hence the changes in the name, but it features globally the same things:
A park surrounding the area,
Two gardens, having both their own styles,
A hay, leadng to the castle in a perspective,

The manor is organised in a front part with an Oriel, being surrounded by two aisles, the whole structure is built in bricks, and the interior is fully organised and equipped.
The left aisle is dedicated to the domesticity, containing the kitchens, rooms and staircases.
The first floor is composed of the living quarters, great hall, smoking room and a winter garden, meanwhile the second floor is occupied by a guest room and the lords appartment, composed of an office, a library and the masters bedroom.

Hoping that you'll enjoy it soon!

Your Devoted, Maximilian Van Laylog

ps: there will be an new upload on darbyshire very soon and I'll do the listing of the new things over there!

Nice work!
The very flat look of the walls of the mansion itself is unfortunate tho. Have you tried to use the thinner glass blocks for windows or something? Maybe that would give it a bit more "structure".

Excellent Idea !
I always used thin glass so far and wanted to try it on poorer house, which has been convenient, but I'll change it!
The new map of darbyshire should be online around monday, you should be able to check it ;)

And thanks for the comment, dude!

I mean, it's for the most part just the jacobean style being a pain to represent in minecraft^^ Every now and then I continue my work on a neo gothic castle which is heavily influenced by dutch architecture so it is kinda plain as well. Still can't figure out how to not make it look boring. By now I am almost convinced buildings like that and in 1:1 only look okay when a surrounding park frames then :D

I'm looking forward to the map update.

Haha, Jacobean still pass, compared to baroque I think x) but I'm looking in your way (and would be glad to see your castle btw!) In my eyes, the best way to not look boring and create contrast is to have textures that fits together and a very limited number of them, the detail level is just suggested most of the time!
I'm still tying to nail english gothic bay windows in player size, and tthere's not long to wait now!
