Water Logs £78,000 Half this price is for cups of tea alone. £28,800 Lots of chimneys means lots of logs Chimneys Security £24,000 £60,000 Somebody's got to sweep them Ball games are definitely not allowed on these grounds. Insurance £210,000 Grounds With a house this fancy, it pays to be prepared. £240,000 Looking this good doesn't come cheap. Maintenance Garden £1,800,000 Bet the hoovering's a nightmare. $420,000 Weeding has never been such chore. Cleaning Staff $1,080,000 £397,000 Dusters at the ready!
