Our house is light and airy, stylishly contemporary, with family living in mind. Throw open the sliding doors and let the garden in! Pick fresh eating apples, pears, cherries and walnuts from our trees where parakeets, squirrels and lots of other birds frequent. The vegetable patch and herb garden are there to be enjoyed. The garden is romantically lit for alfresco dining while the sunken trampoline, netball post and adventure playhouse system keep the kids happy.
We are 3 Minutes walk from Chiswick House (www.chgt.org.uk), an English Heritage property, which is a magnificent neo-Palladian villa set in beautiful historic gardens. The new modern café within the grounds is a delightful place to have brunch, lunch or afternoon tea and cake.
