The house dates back to the 16th Century and was extensively remodelled in the Arts and Crafts style in 1897 by Sir Edwin Lutyens, widely regarded as the greatest architect of his age. It is approached by a long driveway which leads through wrought iron gates terminating in a wide turning area in front of the house. The house sits perfectly, surrounded by its magnificent grounds, believed to be first laid down by the celebrated garden designer Gertrude Jekyll. The interiors have been redesigned in 2002 by Enrica Stabile from l'Utile e il Dilettevole in Milan. In all, a light and airy Grade II listed residence, perfect for entertaining and with extensive guest and staff accommodation.
