Normally the Mason Collection will have somewhere or something out of the ordinary on offer but in this case it is just a house! A big, solid, somewhat neglected house with lots of windows, many of them open in a rural setting. The catalogue title states "House - Rathalohean - No 44, Fr Mathew set."
and therein may lie the clue. So, is it or isn't it?
