Well, this all-brick, Georgian-style manor house is truly special, with unparalleled quality of construction and numerous details throughout. It's laid out for entertaining on a substantial scale, yet has plenty of more intimate spaces to enjoy throughout. Pictures don't do this house justice, as each visit reveals more terrific details.
