The house has been empty all these years, and now it's being sold.
Who on earth would want to buy an extraordinary place like this?
To a couple called -let me think- Sallis, I believe.
Sallis??
Sallis??
But ... but that's us!!
You?
You must've got the wrong name.
This isn't the house we're buying. Harry, we've come to the wrong place.
We're buying a Georgian house, in Butterfield Lane, near Mamesby.
This is Butterfield Lane, near Mamesby.
Oh!! The house agents must've made a mistake, dear.
Surely not!!
I wouldn't have thought so, but they must have.
Well, I never!!
