This is Gibside Hall in Rowlands Gill , North East UK which was built between 1603 and 1620. The house became vacant in the 1920s after death duties forced the Bowes-Lyon family (the queens mother) to scale back its lavish lifestyle and give up some of its great houses. The building was stripped of its fixtures and fittings, with many of the fireplaces and other items being transferred to Glamis Castle. Parts of the structure were demolished in 1958, including the removal of the roof, and the remains are protected by Grade II listed building status.
