Cult Clip: The House of a Dream from British Pathe
Just click on the freeze frame image to view the short movie from Pathetone Weekly (part of British Pathe), which is a newsreel of the brand new house, the setting (before houses were built around it) and the people who first lived in it.
Check it out below and if you want to see the house today, there's a sales open day this Saturday, May 15th 2010. More on the sale here.
