In the 1760s Charles James Packe (1726 – 1816), rebuilt the Hall and soon after created the park around it. Standing on the northern part of the East Lawn runs a line of cedars, already in 1780 said to be of notable size.
Five years after Charles William Packe (1792 – 1867) inherited the historic home of Prestwold in 1837, the house was largely remodelled by the defining Scottish architect William Burn. One of his earliest English commissions, it is one of the finest examples of a William Burn house in the neoclassical style.
Within the house, there is a notable collection of twentieth century portraiture and of eighteenth-century English and European furniture.
