Open the gate and enter. Follow the drive through the She Oaks and Cypress past the geese, the Alpacas, the creek and willow pond to the courtyard where the buildings cluster beneath a giant Elm. The courtyard offers a taste of Tuscany and is an ideal entertaining area. Hear the silence, see the old stones, be part of history.
Come into the Homestead. Wander through the lounge and into the ballroom with its open fire and perfect French windows. Pass through the booklined reading room and enter the guest suite, with its glamorous bathroom from the pages of Belle, then enter the farmhouse style kitchen with its slate floor and traditional hearth. Climb the narrow stairs to the first floor bedroom, bathroom and office tucked under the roof. Peek through your dormer windows onto your estate, the hedges, the trees, the lawns, the river and the distant hills. Feast your eyes on beautiful Cottage, Barn and willow-shrouded pond.
The Cottage is fully self-contained and could continue as commercial guest accommodation, or serve as your in-law rooms.
