The photos on the internet and what you find is not the same. The gardens need attention and you could see that nothing been done for mothes. The titles arround the hous are in pieces. The tv room windows are broken and a large poece of the window was totally out. We could not find a access to the river. All over it could be a very nice place but need urgent attention. The house is well equipped.
