    Default The sailors house..


    Visited this a whole back coming home from a Scotland trip.not a lot to say about it really.it was fairly stripped.a large Georgian style house with some nice original features.the house is reasonably good condition.with a large amount of land out back.it did have some nice quaint outbuildings which are always nice to see I think,i wish I could own some like that.you just don't see houses like that with them anymore.someone had obviously bought this with the idea of doing it up,and then stopped.no work has gone on here for a long while/































































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Nice photos, man! I love the radiosity effect of the greenery reflecting off of the walls, such a neat effect.

    That's a lovely looking house, the type you draw when you're a kid.

    Your 'quaint' outbuildings are the most interesting thing here - Coach house, stables and living accommodation for coachman, groom(s)and stable hand. No large house was without these buildings; and not just in the country either, you could find them in any town or city. For the first eleven years of my life we lived in a first floor flat situated in a very large Victorian semi - it had its stables, coach house and living accommodation, but they had been converted into storage loft and double garage (the normal conversion in that part of Doncaster) with the ones owned by the next door semi being converted into a small cottage for the occupant's son - severely wounded in WW1.

    I love old out buildings.sadly most people don't bother with them and would rather concentrate on the main house but they ooze character
