    Eh. I don’t really like it. First of all, I don’t see the 25,000 square-feet. With rooms that low, it really makes the estate look dated. The exterior stonework is nice, but overall something is missing – Maybe something around the windows? Inside is clean, but plain. I really hate low ceilings coupled with NO ornamentation whatsoever. Is it really that hard to add crown moldings or SOMETHING? I don’t see anything in this home to make it worth the asking price. And the worst part has to be the 3(?) car garage. Inexcusable.

      I agree, The front exterior is so ugly!

    I love the exterior, and the stonework looks wonderful. I like some of the interior, although some rooms don’t work for me. Specifically, the two-story office looks oddly proportioned and here is too much beige for me. I would need to add some color were it my house, plus some of the ceilings should have a little more going on. It looks like a livable house, and the style seems appropriate for the area. It’s not “grand” like one would expect in a house this size, and that’s actually a plus in my book. A 3-car garage is way undersized for a house/estate this size. At least with 5 acres it would be very easy to add a separate garage building in the same style of the house.

    One of the things I noticed was the lack of a chandelier over the dining room table, nor any kind of down lighting in many of the rooms. You’re left with floor lamps and dark corners. In some ways it seems to be a house that had significant additions on to it, rather than built all at once.

    I do like the stonework, but its rather austere; certainly on the front facade. I would think that hanging authentic shutters with some detailed ironwork (rather than just screwing them on) might improve that. Additionally, the grounds need to mature a bit more as well. Everything looks newly planted.

    I’m generally not a big fan of the Cotswald style in general but this is a very well executed estate.

    I love, love, love this!!! ahh i do love stone! the exterior is breathtaking, i love the execution, the little garden/patio area out front is awesome. Evergreens surrounding the property definitely a plus. you can see just from looking at the pictures that the owners spent alot of time decorating the place, maybe even years, it is beautifully done! Aside from some color, some crown molding, and adding some more garage space theres not a thing id change on this house before moving in. Absolutely amazing.

    This house is really nice, great exterior and well done/poportioned. Nice to see the level of workmanship. A few things I would change inside but overall one of the best you have had in a long time.
