    Default Tiger Manor


    Well what can I say about this place?
    I cant lay claim to finding this & I fear that some goontubers have already discovered it so I dont give it long but dont want to give too much away!
    In 8yrs of exploring this is in my opinion the best domestic property Iv been in. Not only is it structurally in good condition its simply packed full of beautiful antiquities, including urns full of ashes.
    What is really apparent is that whoever lived here really was stuck in the past, there is very little that would appear less than 30yrs old at the very best.

    I could of spent hours in here but with rapidly fading light we only had an hour & barely scratched the surface, hope u enjoy what I did manage to snap

    As Lonnie said Oi wheres me tigers head?...

    Wow! As a lover of antiques I was looking at your pictures and I started to drool. You could host an episode of The Antiques Roadshow in this house. The best item that I saw would be in picture 9O5A4274. That's a beautiful dresser, what makes it stand out from any dresser is the curved drawers, the two ornate turned pillars either side of the mirror. But we cannot miss out the three clocks. All the wooden furniture needs is a good layer of Beeswax polish. A good find Glynn.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Me too, there was so much stuff in there that would look lovely in my house!
    Unfortunatelly too many people have already found it so only a matter of time before some less honest do & it all starts to walk.
    I hope the owners get whatever issues they have sorted quick & turn this back into the superb family home it was meant to be!

    No but in all likelyhood they were, just didnt want to attract attention as there are other properties quite close!

    Presumably this is the old Vets House - hence the ash filled urns. A Doctor for human patient would have had a lot of explaining to do; even thirty years ago, if he was storing human remains. Sadly HJ the Hall Dresser is not what it seems; as it is a piece of Victorian, factory mass produced furniture. If memory serves, it even has a design registration number. However in todays market it may well have some enhanced value. Sadly many pieces of Hall furniture like this had their framed mirrors removed, so that they could be hung on the hall walls of smaller houses. Mother's family were Auctioneers and Valuers and over the years I have seen many similar items pass through their salesrooms.

    Thats some good knowledge. I assumed they were Victorian.
    The ashes had a name on & appear a human size urn, so possibly a relative as has been found in some other houses.. a bit weird if u ask me hanging on to them like that though!

    Thanks for that, very interesting. I misread the number of Urns! I was also thinking of the old Vets house that was supposedly found years ago in North Yorkshire - but then disappeared off the radar.
