Terri B. Yes, those poor children “stuffed” in their attic rooms, and their (marble) bathroom “not even having a window”!! Yikes indeed!

I'm in the camp of the "nice but...". Beautiful period home, but looks like an elegant hotel. Too classical, too smooth, too much grey and lacks personality, I'm not sure exactly why. My favourite rooms are the entrance hall (beautiful stones + pink), the child's room (some color at last an looks a bit lived in) and the room with the darker wallpaper (has more character). The rest is too reminiscent of pictures you could find in Home design (or other such interior design magazines) and it seems that some of the charm and cosiness of old English cottages has been lost on the way. Sorry for my lack of enthusiasm, I guess I'm a bit disappointed because the house has such a fantastic potential that has not been (in my humble opinion) exploited to the most.
