Great Maytham Hall
Great Maytham Hall sits in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside just outside the picturesque village of Rolvenden. The house was designed in 1909 by Sir Edwin Lutyens, one of the most remarkable English residential architects and a key exponent of the Arts and Crafts movement. The chance to own a home in a Lutyens house is a rare one. The Hall's Grade II* listing reflects its significance as a fine and mature example of his work.
Great Maytham Hall was home to Frances Hodgson Burnett in the 1890's, who wrote ‘Little Lord Fauntleroy’ and, inspired by the characteristic mellow brick walls and wrought iron gate of the old walled rose garden, 'The Secret Garden’. Her garden is still a prominent feature of the formally designed gardens and 17 acres of grounds.
FOUR CENTURIES OF HISTORY AND CLASSICAL ELEGANCE
Swallowfield, Royal County of Berkshire
Swallowfield Park is a 17th Century, Grade II* listed classical mansion offering 'grand estate' living in majestic style. Dating back to 1678, the house was designed by architect William Talman, better known for his English baroque design at Chatsworth House and a student of Sir Christopher Wren.
Situated within 25 acres of traditionally maintained parkland, which is available for the apartment owners to enjoy, Swallowfield Park offers individual and elegant country apartments of historic significance within the mansion and original stables.
