As his elderly relative lay dying, insurance salesman Mr. Chase stands in the
wings, waiting to inherit the manor of the soon to be deceased. Yet once in
possession, Chase deems the home entirely impractical and a burden whose only
useful purpose is to be sold for capital. For him, the house holds none of the
charm that had so beguiled its former mistress. But as the wheels are set in
motion for the sale, an inexplicable change begins to take place within him, and
soon Chase finds himself falling deeply--and irrevocably--in love with the very
house he had once so scorned.
