In my search of country ‘weekenders’ for sale I saw this amazing stone palace overlooking the sea. To me there is something a little austere about the facade, but it’s very beautiful. I love the gardens (with view of course!), and the beamed ceilings inside.
It’d be like showering inside a fort!
Then there’s this amazing French chateau property (below). I love the outside (which I might soften with some climbers) and the gardens, and the inside is very grand, but if I had to be critical a little McMansion-y for me – yes, I can afford to be picky as I’d never be able to actually buy this place!
Then, there’s this place (below). This one is actually potentially within reach and though it’s not grand or impressive like the first two, it’s my favourite house of the three. The house and the trees have a real New England type of country charm, don’t you think?
And I just love the windows looking out onto trees, the windows seats and the small-ish rooms..
