I was nibbling on my second Nestle mini ice cream drumsticks last night and feeling sorry for myself ( I had to bid farewell to the hubby again this week because Uncle Sam decided to whisk him off to fight for his country) when I came across a feature on this unique estate, located in London; Aynhoe Park. For a couple minutes, I forgot about my worries and was peering closely at every detail of this magnificent architectural head-turner and was trying to grasp the fact that this is an occupied home-someone does live here! Quite majestic and theatrical in its impression, Aynhoe Park has stood its ground for over 300 years. Its current owner, James Perkins, re-invented the home, bringing it into the twenty-first century, while acknowledging its history. James surely didn’t skimp on the taxidermy and gothic touches. The house is available for private hire and I am sure it is the quintessential location to create an unforgettable occasion.
I wouldn't mind a field trip to Aynhoe Park. However, I doubt I’d be able to sleep here though; too much taxidermy perhaps…? What do you think? Have a wonderful weekend everyone and stay cool; it’s sweltering hot in my neck of the woods! XX
