A bespoke period-style house in an amazing walled garden setting within the grounds of this extensive country estate.
Built in 2001 to replace service accommodation for the main house, The Walled Garden became our selling client's home, following their sale of Leyswood House after a long period of post-war family ownership.
The Walled Garden is a distinctive property in its own right, using classical architecture in the style of a grand country house in miniature', with tall, multi-paned sash windows complementing the fine brickwork and with the southern elevation on the level with the lawned garden being a real highlight. The theme is echoed in the interior, with its high ceilings and elegant touches - fitting for a grand residence and incorporating modern features including underfloor heating to the ground floor.
The wonderful setting within superb gardens does not disappoint, being beautifully designed with substantial planting and formal structure and water taken from the original well. The extensive outbuildings include the charming Playroom' with its deep logia and walled patio garden.
There are many carefully chosen mature trees, including palms, fig, mulberry, apples and plums, hedging and clipped topiary features. There is also an extensive kitchen garden with fruit, vegetable and asparagus beds and composting bays.
The tree-lined driveway, mature hedging and various walkways, finished in gravel and brick and stone, divide up the areas of the garden, with the impressive Grade II listed original walls intact to the borders on two sides and mature screening to the others.
The elaborate gated pedestrian entrance through and down to the main house has to be seen to appreciate the scale and importance of this estate.

A wonderful downsizing opportunity or potential for a fine family home, I believe that once viewed, you will not be able to stop thinking about this very special place.Robert Jacobs
