Beautiful! This image is going right to my files. Is it fitted out with dressing rooms and a lounge? I'm completely fascinated by the type of building-do know the tennis pavilion at Kiluna Farm if so might you have pictures of it? As always thank you for taking us behind the walls and gates.

I don't have any pictures of Kiluna Farm, but as for the one above it has a viewing box from the second level (which is entered from a hallway on the other side) and downstairs at court level there are a few closets (which may have been dressing rooms). One of the closests I got stuck in as a child for about half an hour, it was a little scary. The tennis court was a later addition, check out the google view of 'Crossroads' and you can see its position relative to the main house.
