They have been working on a much needed major revamp of the pool garden for what seems like several years now. For you Elsie de Wolfe fans, there is a tea house at the end of it that is reputed to be one of the last de Wolfe interiors extant.

wow - the perfect english country house transplanted here. its great. good proportions and excellent arch. details. when can i move in. you can just call me Lord Pack Rat for short.
if its all in the details, then this house has them all. my fave is that little tower in the corner on the back facing the terrace. what a great house - big but not pretentious. can't wait to see the interiors. thanx, zach
