    Those wooden beams get annoying. The helicopter would not get annoying, however.

    This could be a great house. The interior is something of a jumbled mess, but the character and patina of the house is wonderful. Bring in a skilled decorator to do it up with a comfortable interior that’s sympathetic to the history of the house and it would be a stunner.

    Ya know, I really like this…quirks and all. Some of the ceilings are low, a few doorways are comically short, and there are a LOT of very dark wood beams everywhere, but somehow it all adds up to a very charming manor home. I would have made some different choices, like ditching the overly shiny marble floors in various rooms, but you can’t beat this for history and character. Add in the generous amount of land and the fact that Surrey (from an American viewpoint) seems to be the Greenwich CT of England, and it looks pretty attractive to me.

    Also, could someone familiar with British real estate paraphrase what the “Grade listed” system means? It says this is “Grade II”….how many grades are there and what do they mean?

    Hmmm…agreed about those damn beams ( and low ceilings), and not sure if I’d venture into the black pool. As Dan said tho’, the helicopter’s okay!
    p.s. where’s Mak these days? Did she buy Chiltern? And, sorry, even with all that lovely acreage in England, I wouldn’t go back there to live in this lifetime! I spent my first 23 years in the cold and damp…that’s enough! 😉
