Imposing grandeur indeed Tom
Tom Wilson: He was a fine architect - and a playwright - a talented man!
Would be great to clean it to remove all the black.
Tom Wilson: It got rather smoky thereabouts in the 18th to 20th centuries smile But a total clean up might remove some of the history smile
A magnificent design isn't it.
Tom Wilson: It would be nice to have a small country house like that smile
Magnificent...
Tom Wilson: A lovely facade.
Signs of restoration already Tom

a really impressive, neoclassical (?)building, it is a pity to hear of its ruined state, a 'Potemkin village' now, but still of pure grandeur!
