From the Stacks: An Expat

Canadian expat Thomas Wiggin's Georgian home, The Hylands, south of London was one of my favorite features in House and Home's November 2007 issue. Can you imagine waking up in the morning to this stately second floor balustrade overlooking the foyer and then making your way down to breakfast? This isn't just a home, it's an experience.

Wow! Can't imagine.
Beautiful images. Just can get any better than the older issues.
Have a nice day, Michele.

That gray bathroom is too good

Oh, I remember that house. It's one of those old money lived-in English aristocratic looks that money just can't buy (or maybe lots of it). I recall the bedroom being rather plain and perfect with a bed in an alcove...
