The once beautiful house of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.... He wrote a lot of his stories in there ...built when his wife got very ill.  He would get up early and begin his writings about 6 a.m.... The Hound of the Baskervilles was one of those stories....   What a gorgeous home and now its in peril ....  I have no clue what the English are thinking when they let this one slip by and get into the hands of developers who want to turn it into a bunch of flats .. (or apartments).  It would be worth a mint to keep it in the style of the period he lived in it ... and have it open to the public.  Great efforts are under way to have that happen but its been a while now ... I sure do hope they keep it .. he deserves it.... he was a great man .. not only a great author.
