Julie Croucher, Tribes

"Having known about this private house for years and seen photos of it, I thought I knew what to expect ... but nothing on 'paper' can convey the shear scale of this place!  The front door was made by giants and the huge main area open to the high ceiling gives the feeling of being in your own castle!  For families and groups of friends, this is a fantastic option."
