For only 25 million

March 25, 2009

British pounds, that is, you could buy the entire estate of Linkenholt, including the village,  which goes up for sale tomorrow.  It includes the manor house, naturally, 21 other dwellings, 2000 acres of farm and woodland, a village shop, a blacksmith forge, and a cricket pitch.  About the only thing not included is St. Peter’s church.  It belongs to God. 

You know, we’re talking about moving sometime in the near future.  I could picture myself living in an English country house.  I really could. 

DH’s ancestors actually came from that very part of the world and Richard Nyren, one of his great-great-great’s, was one of England’s most famous cricketers.  We really should learn more about the sport, and what better way to begin than by purchasing our very own cricket pitch. 🙂

    And just think, you could move over there when Homeschooling is outlawed in America! ;o) The Queen is of the opinion that the children belong to the parents and that they should be educated accordingly. Of course, by then the taxes will be about equal! ;o)
