Kingston Lacy House 5/7

Following on from yesterday a picture of the South-Eastern side of Kingston Lacy house in Dorset. This has a very nice small garden just below the three arches and I will show more of that next week.

Gorgeous building! Nice framing of the shot.
Brian Walbey: Magnificent isn't it Hollie.
Gosh this really is a lovely place!
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just Elizabeth, perhaps we should have hired it out for the SC.meet and made a weekend of it, all we would have needed were the servants smile

Wonderful shot, it totally blows me away, how they can afford living in these big houses. Think about the cost of heating....
Beautiful well kept garden.
Brian Walbey: The people who had these big houses lived off the back of the ordinary people and their very hard labour to be honest. Thank goodness those times are more or less over. This is a lovely house, next week is a picture taken from the inside of those lower windows looking out over this garden.

It looks very stately, Brian...and so English! smile
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely house Ginnie. This is what I said to Elizabeth, perhaps we should have hired it out for the SC.meet and made a weekend of it, all we would have needed were the servants, wouldn't that have been great.

You seem to be the only visitors
Brian Walbey: Not really Chris, I just try to avoid he GUW.for images such as this, Maureen tells me off about that, like most men I take no notice wink
the fine lines and upright architecture are again well presented here Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, it is a lovely house to photograph.

Great looking building
Brian Walbey: It is indeed vintage, whoever had this built must have had a great deal of money at the time.

This one is the pick for me (so far) Close enough to see the detail yet sited well in its surroundings.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, tomorrow is a closer shot of that central section.

Tis side is particularly beautiful!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Philine, I am fairly certain you would really like this house.
how many rooms will this mansion count
Brian Walbey: I've really no idea Chantal, all such houses had loads of rooms for the social side of life apart from their own private rooms and then another load for all the servants, it's difficult to imagine that isn't it.
A lovely mansion and gardens - a beautiful shot Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, it is indeed a beautiful house.
Very nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.

It's certainly very grand. Very different to Corfe castle!
Brian Walbey: It most certainly is Alan, slightly more comfortable in inclement weather.
Suitable touch of the HDRs about it smile
Brian Walbey: Well a touch of Topaz Tom, it does give a HDR feel to it I suppose.
My favourite so far Brian! Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I like this one.
You have shown the house to fine effect Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it is a fine house to show.
Yesterday was stately, this side is pretty, very pretty.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Sheila, not quite so formal. more decorative.
Nicely framed Brian... with the sun on the front and the heavy clouds behind it....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, the light was very kind while we were there.

A house I have promised myself to visit - this is a real encouragement
Brian Walbey: Certainly worth a visit Lisl, and nice grounds as well.
Certainly a perfect day, now for tea on the lawn smile
Brian Walbey: Tea for two on the lawn would have been very acceptable John.
Your suggestion of hiring out this house for the SC meet sounds wonderful, Brian. I can just imagine it as a script for a mystery weekend where the characters are introduced and then each one followed as they carry out some misdeed or another, haha.
Brian Walbey: You have quite a vivid imagination Beverly, it sounds as though, like me, you enjoy a good thriller to read. It would be even more of a great gathering if some, such as yourself, Mary, Ray, vintage, Philine, and others from overseas could be there as well,
