|"A handsome, modern building..."

It is a little surprising to me that Lady Catherine's home, Rosings, is described as a modern building rather than an older, established home that has been passed down through Sir Lewis de Bourgh's family for generations. Would Sir Lewis perhaps have torn down an old house that was in disrepair and had a new one built? And does anyone know what would have been meant by a "modern" building at that time?
