Fine & Country Mayfair (020 7079 1523)
This property has delightful grounds of approximately 1½ acres with lawns to the front and west running down to a dry-stone wall over which lies open rolling countryside. High mature trees line the driveway and at the front of the house an attractive lime tree provides shade and is the ideal spot for a garden swing. Beyond this, the hard-surface Tennis Court is fully fenced with flood-lights and an equipment store. A hedge divides the south and west lawns, and screens a maintenance area which houses a range of garden sheds and a log store. A wide York stone-flagged patio runs around the west side of the house, laid out in wide terraces to create a wonderful elevated area overlooking the expanse of lawn and the views beyond. At the far side is a Hot Tub and an original well bordered by limestone walling. At the edge of the lawn is a pretty timber Summer House with a decked terrace and a charming beach-hut interior, also ideal for entertaining or as a quiet spot from which to soak up the views.
