    For some reason I thought the thread was an invitation to King Willy.

    No photos inside the house despite the claim of mod cons. Looks fine from outside, but I'm dubious.
    Sounds a bit cheap for such a large holding.

    I thought it was a tease for Blue.

    Or Pride and Prejudice, or even Jane Eyre.
    Possibly even the Weasley's holiday camp spot.

    It looks like a nice place for a walk. Not so sure about living there full time though.

    How's the well water? I don't see fish any where near there. It looks like it does have a creek though.

    The house looks cold. Not much for heating wood nearby. I do like the wind turbine. All it needs is a mmaze of hedges and it would be perfect for a remake of a movie. "All work and no play"

    Is that not where there is a great big panther like thing roaming around and killing the natives?

    Would be nice for a weekend, but not for forever.

    I'd rather a cozy cottage in the Cotswolds, near a pub.

    Loved to walk around that area many years ago and would jump at the chance if I could afford it...

    Does it have a WiFi connection, our rice fields in Nakon Ratchetbury has soared in value now that it has a WiFi connection. When you build a house, the builders can Facebook you the progress as it happens, while you can watch it on your phone relaxing in your hammock.
