The southern face of Nonsuch Palace had the Renaissance decoration and tall eight-sided towers at each end.

Nonsuch Palace was called Nonsuch Palace because there was "none such" (none like it) anywhere else.

And it no longer exists.........

" It returned to royal hands in the 1590s, and remained royal property until 1670, when Charles II gave it to his mistress, Barbara, Countess of Castlemaine. She had it pulled down around 1682–3 and sold off the building materials to pay gambling debts."
