An eithteenth century house with old walled gardens which were re-designed in the late twentieth century. The water staircase and other features survive from the old garden. The use of plants and colour themes is imaginative and successfull. The topiary garden has water lilies in sunken water tanks. Most of the planting is in the Arts and Crafts style but there is also an Islamic garden loosely based on the chaharbagh idea. The gardens have been restored by Marylyn Abbott.
