When I saw this house I could not help but gasp in disbelief and then chuckle. I don’t think I have ever been more disappointed by an interior after seeing an exterior in all my years of blogging. So with that, let me share with you a bunch of exterior photos of this manor house for sale in Somerset (which includes 2 cottages), and then the interior. Consider yourselves warned 😉 For sale via Roderick Thomas
