Since apprraisal, very substantial additional features have been added (new windows, new HVAC, major terrace expansion, etc), as well as more square footage, including the Groom's cottage, at great cost to sellers, in line with their concept of constant improvement, and supperior maintenance. Health issues and retirement are at the core of their desire to sell at this time.
