Have not seen images of the Braes with such mature landscaping intact. Wonderful view as well as yesterdays aerial. Two beautiful properties thankfully still extant.

Is there a rule of thumb to reference when trying to pinpoint the staffing needs for a house of this size? One presumes you would need a driver to bring the cars around, nannies for the children, cooks and assistants to prep meals, housekeepers, valets, personal secretary, groundskeepers, etc not to mention extra seasonal help? Would a dozen employees be suitable or inadequate?
