How do you imagine the Clue(do) mansion?

Post by Jonathan Green » Wed Sep 18, 2019 7:06 pm

How do you picture Mr. Boddy's/Dr. Black's mansion?

I picture it somewhere in the south of Hampshire, England, near Southampton. Probably in New Forest, Eastleigh, or Fareham.

The estate's name is Blackwell, after the Black family, who owns it for many year. The house is called Tudor Close.
It was constructed in 1665, making it 361 years old (remember my Clue-verse , it's 2026).
It would be 354 years old today, if it was real.
William Black (the founder of Tudor Mansion) was a wealthy merchant, who did all of business importing and exporting goods from the English Channel.
He commissioned for a grand mansion for his family. It first began construction in 1663. It took two years to finish construction.

It looks like the 2016 mansion (the one on the box cover, which looks like Hill House) with a mix of the Classic Mansion theme form the MGS Clue game.

The mansion is hidden within the English hills. The north courtyard is where the garage is.
The mansion is magnificent, with beautiful botanical gardens.

The grounds are like the Classic Mansion Theme and the Tudor Mansion Theme.
There's a forest surrounding the estate. It has a large greenhouse in the south gardens, with overlooks a pond in front of it, where swans often swim in. Behind the greenhouse is a giant lake called Blackport Lake, name after William Black's trading company, Blackport Trading Co. The other side of the lake is the village of Little Falls, which is as old as Tudor Mansion. Blackport Lake leads into the English Channel. There's a boat house at the lake.

At least I can say the Caldarium is unique to my mansion only. :wink:

Let's talk about the classic nine rooms...

Great Hall: Something like the Franklin Mint Hall, it's a blue Georgian hall, with marble tile. Paintings of the past owners of Tudor Close. A red, giant carpet, with the Black family crest. Marble statues are at the corners of the room. The front door faces North.
Think the Hall from Turblad Mansion and the Great Hall from Chatsworth House.

Lounge: A green Victorian with brown wood paneling. With leather cushions near the white marble fireplace (which leads to the secret passageways). There's some bookshelves, a cabinet displaying sound antiques, a large painting of a light house over the firplace. Lamps are across the walls. A black piano is off near the corner. There is TV on the south wall (it's the 2020s after all).

Dining Room: Crimson red room, with white paneling trimmed with gold. A large mirror bordered with gold hangs over the white fireplace. Paintings of past generations cover the wall. A dark wood table that sits 24 people. Dark wood chairs w/ light blue cushioning. The table is covered with sterling silver candlesticks. A cabinet with antique dishes, glasses, and silverware.
Like the Dining Room from Chatsworth House and the Great Room from Althorp Estate. The windows face the West Gardens.

Kitchen: A mix of Victorian/Queen Anne and La Cornues. The size of a five-star restaurant's. The floor is the classic black-and-white checker floor. Looks like the one Clue: Murder at Boddy Mansion. The secret passage is in the pantry.

Grand Ballroom: Louis XVI. Has a stage and several tables. Beautiful chandeliers hanging on the ceiling. The windows lead to the South Gardens.

Conservatory: Filled with lots of plants. Has a fountain. The windows are French Victorian. The fountain activates a secret stairway to the passageways.

Billiard Room Looks exactly like the 2016 Billiard Room, the one with the two pool tables. Also has a bar, a roulette table, poker table, almost like a mini casino. There’s a French door that leads to the East Gardens.

Library: Victorian Style. Two-stories, with lots of books. Like the Harlan Crow Library and Mario Williams' library.

Study: Royal Blue walls with white paneling. Three bookshelves are behind the desk, filled with medical books. The grandfather clock leads to the secret passageway.

I could have sworn I commented on this thread. Is there more than one thread of this topic?

There seem to be several threads with the term "Mansion" in the title.
Maybe you're thinking of one of those?

I decided to rename my mansion Tudor Close. Sounds more fancier.
