A few weeks ago B & I went to a local National Trust property Castle Ward. This particular Trust property is interesting because it contains gardens, park grounds, an old school Big House, a Castle and is located on the Strangford Lough in County Down.
The Big House was of particular interest to me as it contains several different district design styles – Georgian, Gothic and Victorian. The house went through several different transitions – high society home to shelter for farm animals. It has been beautifully restored and is incredibly charming. The House itself was built in the 18th century.
This wallpaper is well over a hundred years old. Can you imagine how expensive it would have been? And it is obviously of excellent quality to have lasted this long – animals and insane family members (a man allegedly tried to kill his own brother in this house)
