I was very much amused and impressed by this Curtis Jensen’s full-scale replica of the mansion used in Downton Abbey. Originally the residence of the eighth Earl and Couness of Carnarvon, Downton Abbey in real life is an Elizabethan manor house in the Berkshire countryside known as Highclere Castle. Sir Charles Barry, the architect who also rebuilt London’s House of Parliament, redesigned the building in the nineteenth century. Highclere Castle has also been used as a location for the British TV series Jeeves and Wooster and the movie Eyes Wide Shut.
Mr. Jensen’s gingerbread estate is amazingly like the original.
I just love to watch other people work. Enjoy!
