Wishful daydreaming, we’ve had our eyes on Mamhead House for the past year or so, more in passing than anything else, obviously not having the $10 million USD or so that was the asking price. The estate was listed with Strutt & Parker. We did a quick search for it the other day, hoping to get some inspiration from the beautifully done interiors and of course simply gawk at the gorgeous floor plan(s). Sadly it appears that it has been removed from the agents website and only says no longer available. However, as recently as the middle of April Forbes mentioned it was still for sale. Is it possible that some from over here in the US all of a sudden realized they didn’t owe Uncle Sam that last $10 mil and decided to spring for the most fantastic English country house we’ve ever come across? Or may the current owners through though they might hold on to it for a few more years – yes listings do get stale.
Now that of course it’s off the market we will have to dig up some of the photos if for no other reason that for us to keep them close at hand for our daydreaming and wishful thinking pastimes.
