    It was completely renovated and subsequently bought by Cate Blanchett for 3 Million in January 2016.

    Comparing the photos on the thread it goes to show that a house like the state it was in can be saved. The house is now in a beautiful condition.

    I love sites that nature has really started to reclaim. Great find. The trees have almost obscured it!
