  4. Looks mighty wonderful.
    The trouble is...have you ever stayed in a grand manor house?
    The heating leaves A LOT to be desired.
    Best not to leave the bed ever!!!
    Now the garage might do very nicely...

  5. PB... the first house where I lived in Wales didn't have central heat, or central hot water. If I wanted a bath, I had to start heating the water about two hours in advance!

    The castle where I worked was built in the 1200's and was freezing. We had baseboard heat in our office, plus a huge antique heater that sat in our fireplace. The bathrooms were in the old dungeons and we not heated at all!!!

  6. Perhaps there is a nice hotel or B&B near by where we could agree to meet. Golfers aren't really my thing.

  8. How is it possible the such a fabulous outside could hold within its walls such a drab box???
    My God you need to put another 250 in just to make it worth it.

  9. Alicia and AD... if you want to see scary, look at the Thorndon Hall link. Green background with yellow type. They must have gotten their 11-year old to do it.
