  1. Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dump!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugly and draughty and totally gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF would anyone want this escapes my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So much potential. Lots can be done to make it a truly superb home. Beyond preserving the excellent work done by the current owners I would suggest the walled barns could be made into extra guest accommodation and perhaps an indoor swimming pool added. Such things can be done in a tasteful fashion and with respect to the heritage of the building. They would truly add value and if you owned a car collection they would make for great garaging too. Creating an equestrian course, stabling and a small pheasant shoot would be a wonderful project also… How I dream.
