    Was the word "historical" deliberately chosen as a little wink? It seems pretty obvious that this is a relatively newly-constructed, highly nouveau-riche manor house. If the house actually were old, the word would be "historic." The -al suffix indicates "in the manner or style of," and sometimes (this time?) whispers a hint of the pejorative.
