Sir John Soane's forgotten country house | Piercefield House, Piercefield Park - Chepstow, South Wales, UK, This neo-classical house, which probably dates from Tudor times, or even earlier, has late 17th/early 18th century additions attributed to William Talman. Much of what is seen today is the work of Sir John Soane. Doesn't this look like a fun project [or life's work]? Let me know if you buy it so I can come to visit. I've never been to Wales.

Don't fail to check out Sir John Soane's Museum. Soane designed this house to live in, but also as a setting for his antiquities and his works of art.

It looks beautiful even in ruins. Too bad it wasn't kept up. Must have been spectacular in the beginning.
