If the National Trust sell flats, then maybe.

No, after the family left the house, (I don't know why or when, but in the process of maybe finding out), it has been a Hotel, a Gentleman's Residence and nowa block of flats !!

It's in Kenilworth, Warwickshire. With the street that now resides in it's former grounds called, fittingly, Pears Close.

Interesting home. If you could have gotten just a tad lower, the Kennilworth Hall sign would have completely blocked out the parked cars.

Thanks George :roll:

Yeah you are right though, it would look better without the cars

An edit just for you.
