Blantyre is a true restoration in that it can transport the guest back in time. But now this Berkshire Cottage is on the market. Will it — can it — be acquired by someone who respects its original architecture and does not demand density for profitability?
This sale of Cranwell will be the tenth in a series, and it will not be the last. It is not the first attempt to turn an epitome of indulgence – a Berkshire Cottage — into a profit center. It is not the first attempt to change a building symbolic of another age into something useful in this age.
