Buy a village in England – level 1
In England, a family owns a village. They own it for 150 years. In 2010, the last member of the family dies. Now other people can buy the village. It costs 20 million pounds.
In the village, there are 43 houses and cottages, a pub, a petrol station and a mansion house with 21 bedrooms.
People rent all of the houses in this village. They hope that the rent will not go up.
Difficult words: own (to have), cottage (a small house in the country), mansion house (the large house of a landowner – a person who has a lot of land).
