The second mansion

During the year 1990, the mansion is entirely rebuilt on C.C.'s orders. It finds then its internal aspect of origin.

The imposing main door is replaced by two smaller doors in carved wood.

On the left by entering, we find as previously the access to a corridor leading towards C.C.'s study.

Then, a large and majestic staircase in angle gives access to the first floor.

On its right, we access to a big living-room while passing under arches.

Much more sober in term of colors, the main room of the new villa seems rather deep, and turns around a set of big white sofas, furniture absent in the first villa.

In the background, behind the sofas, a piano is hiding.

An immense fireplace makes its appearance at the bottom of room.

In front of it, a small desk welcomes a telephone and framed family photos.

  

All the lounge is strewed with rich works of art : paintings, sculptures...

At the bottom of the room, we reach by the right the dining room. Very clear because of the numerous windows, the room is filled with an immense rectangular table, indispensable to welcome the numerous members of the Capwell family.

On the first floor, the bedrooms also changed. We see it with C.C.'s, complement inverted compared with the former one : front door on the left, bed at the back on the right.

Same thing for Mason's bedroom, which he comes to re-occupy with Julia at the end of 1992, having left the Ballymoor residence.

This new version of the mansion sees moreover one new room making its appearance on the screen : the kitchen, place privileged for the confidences and some domestic fights. A French window on right gives access to a small patio.

Finally, the guesthouse makes also a facelift. Gina inaugurates it at the end of 1991, while she is pregnant of C.C.. It appears only in a very restricted number of episodes.
