this is interesting ,as you read the for sale brochure it sounds as if the interior in not complete, but the pictures of the exterior show a series of ivy covered walls, mature trees etc. does anyone have any more info on these thoughts?

If you get a chance, go to the Knox School web site and take the campus tour. It takes you through the house and shows you how it is used today as a school facility. Nice interior shots as well.
