Expansive grounds but don't expect... More

Find it down long quite bumpy drive. Inside this extraordinary Greek revival (Latrobe) stone-built house lurk many surprises. Dynamic musical & historical tour with owner (ours was with the Musicians' Company) included seeing & hearing lots of different keyboards. Curiosities of many kinds all over the place; it needs more restoration & it is interesting to see unrestored bits; scrummy... More
