It does look like it, good find :tmb:. Do you know where it is?

It does also look like a golf course, but maybe this building is what inspired Core for Lara's home.

My bad, croft manor was based on Core Design's studios, which was apparently located at 2 Round House Rd, Derby.

I found a pic of the area (big pic):

TRF should try to buy it

now if we all donate 10 Dollars :)

TRfan23
26-10-10, 17:08
41,562 (Total Members) * $10 = $415,620

However, most accounts aren't very active so make that number:

848 (Most active users online 22/01/10) * $10 = $8,480

I'd imagine it's much more expensive then that ;)

So I'd donate $50

41,562 * $50 = $2,078,100 - More reasonable

848 * $50 = $42,400

:)

While that picture in the OP does bare an uncanny resemblence to the original mansion as we know it, it was actually inspired by Core's very own office builing in derby

While the bulding there obviously has absolutely no period featured like Lara's home, you can see the resemblence in the shape, window layout etc.
