This is the entrance to the Grand Corridor on the ground floor from the Billiard’s Room in the South Wing. The “Gothik” door was hung recently part of the Haunted House decorations. Both the estate’s structural engineer and chief architect thought it looked a bit tacky but commented that it was surprising how abandoned and creepy the house could look by actually putting up internal doors, instead of leaving it like the abandoned ruin it was!

I’ll be posting the next Hokusai print juxtaposition tomorrow.

  1. Your blog is very interesting. One can learn much to read it. And I shall take time to read it also.

  2. You’re right, doors are terrifying. Once, when I was small, a door ate my dog. I’ve never forgiven it. When the Judgement Day rolls around, the first thing I’m going to do is blow all doors to smithereens. That’ll show ’em.

  3. oh jc! a lift door also chopped off my brothers arm. lets join forces and start their downfall!! they must be conquered!
