An *estate* comprises the houses and outbuildings and supporting farmland
and woods that surround the gardens and grounds of a very large property,
such as a country house or mansion. It is an "estate" because the profits
from its produce and rents are sufficient to support the household in the
house at its center. Thus "the estate" may refer to all other cottages and
villages in the same ownership as the mansion itself. An example of such an
estate is Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, England.

The "park" is specifically the inner part of an estate that is enclosed by
walling, hedges or fencing.

"Estate", with its "stately" connotations, has been a natural candidate for
inflationary usage during the 20th century, much as the "landscaping" that
can be effected in a front or back yard.

Common usage in the UK sometimes applies the term in a humorous fashion to
the land attached to any property, such as a back garden.

In the US, Long Island and other affluent East Coast enclaves had strong
traditions of large agricultural estates rivaling those of Europe; however
after the 1940's many were lost and today large houses on a few acres are
commonly referred to as "estates".

Anyone seeking to profit from their endeavors are encouraged to investigate
the many profit-making opportunities available today - no such program is
offered here. Participants give freely of themselves and expect nothing in
