This listing is confusing. First of all, calling this house Cotswold style is a little odd, because houses in the Cotswolds look nothing like this. (They're typically made of golden stone, not stuccoed, and don't have exterior shutters or dormers, just to start.) Second, the listing states that the "compound" offers two cottages. To us, a cottage is a second house that could be used for guests; here it seems to refer to a pool house and separate garage. And while the house and grounds are actually lovely in and of themselves, with charming features like beamed ceilings, fireplaces, and formal gardens, we can't see anyone paying nearly eight million dollars for the property. Grounds are only 0.75 acre; there are four bedrooms and 4.5 baths in all.
