Our home ..... once a brothel?

So here is more of our 65 year old Manor house that we bought and have just moved into. I found out today, that 30 odd years ago, it used to be a house of ill repute!!! No wonder we have SO many bedrooms!

This is the view as you stand at the main entrance.

When you walk in alittle, you are able to see the open plan kitchen and formal lounge. I do think the formal lounge is about to become rather unformal though!!!!

Below is a view from the formal lounge of the open plan kitchen.

Below.... I love the fact that I can interact with the family as I cook!

I love period homes.This one has been fashioned in the Tudor style externally, with a classical approach being used internally. The old elements are obvious, and we LOVE that!

Love and Hugs

I like the family room/open kitchen design. Sounds like a very exciting history- good things walls CAN'T talk!
