#10: Je nach Kontext, aber nicht generell: "stately homes in London" site:uk - Google Suche
A stately home is a very large old house, especially one that people can pay to visit. [mainly British]
British English: a large mansion, esp one open to the public
Synonyms: mansion, hall, palace, château
British: a country mansion, usually of architectural interest and often open to the public
stately home - herrschaftliches Anwesen, Schloss
Zu KinkyAfro (long time no see...) hätte ja das Liedzitat aus "Sunny Afternoon" (1966) von den Kinks gepasst:
The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.
Noch ein Beispiel für den BE-Gebrauch. Warning: contains strong language; not for the faint of heart 😉
I went to see a stately home last week. It wasn't a castle, it wasn't a palace, it was just a very big and fancy 1700s country house.
The National Trust, who owns it, calls it an 'unstately home' because it's a mess inside!
"With peeling paintwork and overgrown courtyards, Calke Abbey tells the story of the dramatic decline of a country house estate. The house and stables are little restored, with many abandoned areas vividly portraying a period in the 20th century when numerous country houses did not survive to tell their story."
