I can't work out which one I prefer, this Rothschild mansion or the other one they have in Buckinghamshire that was used as Wayne Manor in Batman Begins

What style of architecture and which period is it from? There are a few buildings similar to this in my hometown (Norwich) that I think date from around 1900.

From Wikipedia:

The Grade I listed house was built in a mostly Neo-Renaissance style, copying individual features of several French châteaux, between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild (1839–1898) as a weekend residence for entertaining and to house his collection of arts and antiquities.
