It might be wishful thinking on my part but I detect a image of a structure that could match the floor plans of this house. Just south of the stables the roof line does not match the current house which shows a 1997 build date. You can still make out a straight cut thru the trees that lines up where the driveway would have met the front entrance of the house.
