The cottage’s only surviving window, Gothicized, frames a verdant courtyard. Inside, the Italian Louis XIII table shows off a Dutch canal scene painted on layers of glass, an example of vue optique, the original 3-D art.

The joy of herbs is not just their smell and culinary qualities but also their good looks. There can be few groups of plants with such character and underlying quality of form and style. Use them to good effect wherever you can.

Dramatic site. This terrace area blends into its woodland setting. Timber decking and random planting extend the rural mood right up to the house surround. The form and foliage of the many plants which will grow in light shade are often characteristic, with large leaves.

Stair landings are good places for continuing a library, especially in country houses where space is generally more generous. Here, creamy bookshelves have been fitted above radiators covered in fretwork panels.

The parquet floor in this kitchen is just one of the extra touches the owners made to transform this kitchen into a room of outstanding elegance. Deciding on wood as the primary material, they chose traditional cabinetry accompanied by unique features such as ample pigeonholes and conventional pull-out fruit and vegetable larders.
