History

Elaine and Arthur Jack Sackville-West III purchased the land in 1997. Jack is a retired Air Force architect/engineer. He and Elaine designed both buildings. In 1999 they moved from their lake home and began building in Long Beach. BJ&R, Ray Bonney, built the guesthouse weather tight while Elaine and Jack built the barn as storage for their household goods. While living in their travel trailer, they finished the guesthouse and shop. In 2001 Ray built the house weather tight. This time they used some subcontractors. But, Jack designed and built the kitchen and den cabinets and workstation to Elaine's specifications. Elaine created the stained glass. Together they built and enjoyed their home.

In 2004 they began the Beachfront Guesthouse Vacation Rental which operated until the summer of 2011. At this time they decided to downsize and move closer to family and friends and travel as much as possible. They named their home Knole House and Knole Guesthouse and turned the management over to Bloomer Estates. Please enjoy what they created.

The original Knole House is an English country house in the town of Seven Oaks in west Kent England. It is reputed to be a calendar house, having 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 entrances and 7 courtyards. The house was built between 1456 and 1486 and owned by King Henry VIII in 1538. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, in 1566 it came into the possession of her cousin Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset, whose descendants the Earl and Dukes of Dorset and Barons Sackville have lived there since 1603. Today, the house is in the care of the National Trust but the Lord Sackville-West family consider more than half the house as their home and they still own the gardens and surrounding estate. The house was pictured in the film, 'The other Boleyn Girl'. In our entry hall is a picture of Knole House and brass rubbings of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn done by Elaine and Jack during their visit to England and Knole House in 1983 where they met Lord and Lady Sackville-West.
