The grounds are impressive and from what I understand, it is furnished impeccably with antiques and other furnishings of heirloom quality. Thomas Alexander was asked by the Spencer family to design a line of furniture, aptly called, Althorp Living History Furniture, The Spencer Collection, based on pieces found in the estate. How I found a piece of this collection at a salvage store in central Maine is beyond me, but I did.
Not only is it, comfortable and plush, it happened to be a perfect neutral for the living room, the perfect sand for the seafoam.
Oh, and guess what? It was marked 90% off the original price. I'd say that's a jolly good deal!
After I work like a dog painting the room, put it all back together, and spiff it up a bit, I'll sit myself down with a spot of tea. Who would have known I'd be sitting like royalty. But why not, isn't every man's home his castle?
