A manor fit for kings and queens of direct marketing

busty idolWell, judging by the response I had to whether I should take a job on PornHub, you lot have even filthier minds than I thought. Contrary to popular opinion, I wasn’t going to be performing on the site – I was just going to work behind the scenes on getting more people to stay longer. Bah.
Anyway, suffice to say, I had to turn them down – after all, where would you lot get your weekly fix of nonsense if I upped sticks and left?
Talking of upping sticks, I see the DM industry’s favourite drag queen – that’s Lloyd James if you didn’t already know – is seeking a buyer for his palatial Jacobian manor house, rather ironically called Boys Hall, and I reckon I could be up for a big slice of commission if I can get a buyer.
So here goes.
Originally built in 1616 by the DeBois family the house is based in the village of Willesborough very close to Ashford in Kent. Just 36 minutes to central London on the high speed train service, five minutes from the M20, 30 minutes to the beautiful Kent coast and just two hours from Paris with Eurotunnel and Eurostar on the doorstep.
The house sits in three acres of beautiful gardens, has ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms, a reception hall, dining hall, drawing room, bar, office, kitchen, separate small dining room, utility room, cellars, and a conservatory.
So how much, I hear you ask. Well, it’s been reduced from £2.4m to a bargain price of £1.75m. And they say there is no money in direct marketing.
I must admit, I am more than a little tempted to buy it myself, although I am not too sure my paltry salary would cover the train fare to see it, let alone the lunch I would have to buy to seal the deal.
Then again, there is a bonus for those of you who can afford to stump up the £1.75m asking price; apparently it is also one of the most haunted houses in the country. Legend has it that Lloyd is often woken up in the night to find a massive pair of hairy “ghoulies” dangling in his face.
And apparently, most of the furniture comes in the price, too, although whether that also includes Lloyd’s famous, er, “wardrobe” is another matter…
