Confusion About Where Julian Assange Will Hide Out

There seems to be some disagreement about where the recently out-on-bail WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will spend his time on house arrest. We know that the residence is called Ellingham Hall, and that it belongs to one of Assange's supporters, writer Vaughan Smith. We also know that it's a 10-bedroom estate set on 600 acres on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, England. Yet Forbes reports that the residence is the one shown above, at left, which other media outlets have mistaken for the one on the right. Here's the confusion: Ellingham Hall is also the name of a grandiose wedding and event space, in Northumberland, England, and photos can be viewed here. Something tells us Assange has far bigger things to worry about than satin-slipcovered chairs.
