Just around the next corner...
The front entrance to Greenway as the house now looks. However, before this classic Georgian architecture, it had other masks… 
It’s history from 1493-1700s from the National Trust page: “First mentioned in 1493, ‘Greynway’ was the crossing point of the Dart to Dittisham. In the late 16th century, a Tudor mansion, Greenway Court, was built for Otho Gilbert and his wife Katherine, nee Champerknowne.
Of their three children born at Greenway, Sir Humphrey, a favourite of Elizabeth I, took possession of Newfoundland for the Queen, whilst Sir John became a lord lieutenant of the county and a man of great local influence, remaining at Greenway for his lifetime.”
