It’s probably no coincidence that one of my favorite sites Remodelista is doing a whole Downton Abbey theme this week as the DVD of season two was just released. Of course they beat me to it as I just watched the last episodes last night and couldn’t wait to find a great manor house rental to post today. Well, it’s hard to find a more simply beautiful bolthole than this one:
Located in Berkshire on 25 acres of gardens and private park, this 10 bedroom manor house was built in 1609. I like the way it has been brought into the modern era with a more streamlined, clean look without losing the charm of period details. Yes, you can rent it and, yes, I’d be happy to meet you there.
