What a lovely view, Chris - handsome estate home out there!
Chris: Once a stately mansion, now a nursing home Elizabeth
What a great name, Chris.
Chris: Yes indeed it is, I don't know the derivation of the name
Exactly as Elizabeth and Frank have said: lovely view and great name. smile

What a funny name - what a lovely view!
Chris: This is out from Bath towards the farm Philine. My in-laws live in the small white building above the tree on the right
Odd name, cool view.
That could be New Zealand or Southern Western Australia if it didn't have that monster hall there smile
Chris: Interesting to know that Rob: thanks
Magnifique prise de vue !!
Chris: Thank you kindly Claudine

Ooooohh... are we looking at your new home? Has the time now come for you to seek to help in your dotage? Will Ratty be allowed in as well? Can I visit you at any time?
Chris: I have a vacancy for a butler, you'll do..
The name sounds like a good title for a spoof costume drama
Chris: Yes it does!

Shockerwick House sits in the valley. Of course I know about this place.
Chris: Of course you do Chad

Chad is just making sure you got his message. This is a lovely landscape and the grand house comes a shock in this pastoral environment. Can't think of something for the "wick" part of the name.
Chris: The derivation of the place name is lost in the mists of time Louis
That house is in a very fine setting.
Chris: Yes it is lovely

What an interesting name. A lovely setting for that rather grand looking building.
Chris: The manor house almost has the whole landscape to itself
I wonder what the shocker was?
Chris: Good question..

This is just wonderful, Chris. What a name and what a place to be.
Chris: Manda & Bernard's house is the little white one above the tree
I think I could be quite happy living there smile
Chris: Would your butler allow me to pass your threshold?
