Hannah shook her head as the car approached her new place of employment. Growing up in small, cramped, council houses, it amazed her that one man would live in a place, which, had it been in a city, would easily have occupied an entire city block, or perhaps two. Dozens of chimneys sprouted along its roof, and small towers rose at the corners. One section in front was covered in ivy from ground to peaked roof, trimmed back along windows and around a stone balcony, and the bell tower which sprouted from the center.
