West House, Rousdon Mansion – FOR SALE

The Newtons are selling West House!

Christine Newton wrote in the 2012 OH Magazine about the restoration work that they did after buying the property in 2002 and now she writes:

"Our wing includes the rooms to the right of the corridor leading from the main entrance/porch. These, we've been told by the several 'Old Boys' (and a couple of Girls, too) who've come to our bed and breakfast over the past few years were some of the Stanton and Chudleigh rooms (I think). Our sitting room has been used for various purposes but in the last few years was a reception room for events in the great hall across the corridor. Our main entrance is down the cobbled slope and into the lower courtyard. One of our parking spaces is in the archway that leads into the inner courtyard. Our garage is the first part of what was the chapel.

I think it would be lovely if someone from the school was able to move here. I think you’ll agree we've upgraded the standard of dormitory accommodation!!"
