Big enough to hold a Victorian family. What more do they want it even detached

It reminds me of my great grandfathers house in Tuscany. He and great nin and eight kids would have lived in it.

Mick; This photo reminded me of Shearings tours some years ago. When you were driving past a small building in a field the coach driver would say it belonged to Wallace Arnold!
