From 1933 to 1963, Nuffield Place was the home of William Morris, Lord Nuffield

Built in 1914, it was enlarged in 1933 for Lord Nuffield, and is a rare survival of a complete, upper-middle class home of the 1930s. It retains the majority of the furniture and contents acquired by Lord and Lady Nuffield when they took up residence, as well as having several rooms still decorated in the 1930's style.
Clocks, rugs and tapestries are of fine quality. Some furniture is antique, but much was custom-made by Cecil A Halliday of Oxford, and is of skilled craftsmanship.
The beautiful four-acre gardens with mature trees, yew hedges, rose pergola and rockery were laid out during and just after the First World War.
Amenities include:
Ample Free Car Parking
Home Made Teas
Limited Access for Disabled Visitors

Santa Monica, California

This two-story rear addition to a 1950s house includes a master suite over a printing studio that opens to a new pool patio.
Why it won: The clarity of the design - continuing the modern post-and-beam architecture of the original house in a subtle way - makes for an almost seamless addition. Yet there are understated differences between old and new, as in the glass corner of the master bedroom; the 5-foot cantilever over the lower floor that shades the patio; and the 18-foot-long wall of sliding glass doors that opens the entire studio to the pool patio, a great feature for parties. The design caused minimal intrusion into the existing structure so the family could remain at home during construction.

Have you tried, but never seem to be able to get a development business off the ground?

Believe me when I tell you, it’s not your fault. You’ve just never been allowed to access this kind of development information before. You can now because I searched libraries, shops and the internet for anything written by an “actual developer” as opposed to academic books and found nothing.
I know you found the same because thousand of my students have told me how relieved they were to find someone who had actually done development and would answer their questions.
So the Real Estate Development Made Easy system is going to be a refreshing change. That’s because it will give you a Step by Step system, as well as full explanations at every stage so that you’ll quickly build your business and confidence. And there is no technology to hold you back – just reading; the ability to add, subtract, multiply and divide.
3) Do you already have a successful development business?
Then you’re going to think you’ve died and gone to heaven. You’ll see your business bottom line take a big jump. The single thing I have been told by experienced ‘self-taught’ developers
is, “I now realize how much money I have left on the table over the past 10 – 15 years.”

Dream Job: Commercial

Like 80 percent of those in his profession, Hanna is paid in straight commission – cashing out only if he closes the deal – which makes commercial real estate brokerage a risky business

No bones about it, said Kevin Hanna: Working the kitchen grill at his grandfather’s steakhouse in Framingham, Mass., as a teenager helped him to launch a successful career in the real estate business.
Hanna, 36, has since traded in a greasy apron for a white shirt at Cushman & Wakefield of Massachusetts, Inc., a commercial real estate firm in Boston where he cooks up deals with some of area’s most cutting-edge companies.
He negotiates leases for retail, healthcare, high-tech, and other industries that are seeking office and industrial space in Boston and greater New England. He represents both landlords looking to market office and industrial space and tenants looking to relocate or expand.
