I want to point out that this is not the mansion I found, this is just the stables, which should give you some idea of the imensity of the area.
The stables were not behind the mansion, but rather a good 1/4 mile away nearly hidden by overgrowth.
I am not often at a loss for words, but the sheer scope of the area (after some reasearch it turned out the original land encompassed nearly 1000 acres) coupled with the magnitude of the decay completely shocked me. All I could think about as I wandered the forgotten lands and buildings, was Percy Shelley's poem about Ramesses the Great.
The most famous line from that work is "Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
