Certainly has the presence and style. Just two things that put me off. Price and location. Oh, and a lack of grounds..
For something at a lower budget, and quite a bit smaller, I offer this: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-fo ... 13167.html

There will very soon be a fantastic period property in Somerset going up on there... ;)

Bit plain though. Could do with blinging up a bit.

If I could find £1.4m down the back of the sofa I think I could cope with that place.

This made me laugh. I was thinking along the same lines.

I guess it’s a nice enough place but I’m not keen on the lack of subtlety. I’d always prefer a quiet authenticity rather than a peacock on a table!

My c1470 former Manor House has just gone on the market with 4 acres (sts), 1/3 mile private fishing, set back from the road, 3 garages, 3 stables, crewyard, 4 bay open barn, car port and parking for several vehicles. Backs onto open fields with no footpaths on or near our property.

Set aside another £1.4m for its upkeep.

Only my opinion but I think the windows spoil it and put the tv somewhere else.

Thank you but we don't have time to put new windows in. We have to be in France by 1st December.
And I'm not sure where else to put the tv?
