This is Compton Verney House (www.comptonverney.org.uk/), and its front presents a great deal of symmetry. There are economies in constructing a building with a high degree of symmetry, and there may be structural advantages. Symmetrical buildings are aesthetically pleasing. Very symmetrical buildings may be easy to get lost in, though, if different parts look very similar.
