The story of how two cottages became a 6,000+ Berkshire mansion is a little ridiculous for the average home buyer, but it shows the lengths a house lover is willing to go to when they fall in love with a property.
“Today, the house is so seamless that it’s hard to tell where the original architecture stops and the new construction begins. One clue is scale: The soaring new living room, with its 21-foot-high timberedbeam ceiling and massive stone fireplace, is more King Arthur than Cotswold cottage in ambience. The other giveaway is the sunlight that pours into the new kitchen and dining room, as well as the spacious library and home office upstairs.” Elle Decor, “The Root of the Matter”
