Charming but needs major structural work
Posted Oct 12, 2016
This is a charming place with fascinating ins and outs and furnishings. I'd love to see the whole place renovated. Till then, two major categories of warning:
1) By 21st century American standards, it is deal-breakingly uncomfortable (steep outdoor stairs to the rooms, a bathroom so small that it is actually difficult to function, no control over the hvac, no fans, and ceilings (and sinks) so low that it's a problem for tall people. Unless you're on the ground suite (Tango, I think) you need to be short, adventurous, and strong-kneed to handle all this.
2) It's musty -- BADLY BADLY musty... and I don't have a very sensitive nose. I think that's the point that broke me (before a long night and long-awaited morning.)
Also, the grounds badly need work.
