Whence the name "Erchless"?

Zach said...

It comes from Erchless Castle in Scotland, a place the family visited in the late 19th century.

Zach, still, I beleive this to be the most beautifully maintained home of all you continue to document - thankfully! robert

There is something unbelievably chic about a grass lawn that comes right up a pool's edge — no overwrought terraces, decking, et cetera. Thank you for a great shot of a perfect, elegant pool. I'm a new fan of the site: It's a daily fix now! Rob in Dallas

Unrelated, but on TCM the 1954 Technicolor movie "A Woman's World" has a brief shot of Coe Hall, and the large gates. The estate is suppose to be the home of an auto tycoon!
