floor are approached enfilade

- formal dining leads on to the

drawing room where double

aspect windows provide a delightful panorama

over the gardens. Stephen's study adjoins

his wife's, where she covered

the walls with traditional toile

de Jouy fabric and tented the

ceiling - a triumph and delight.

Upstairs are four beautiful

en-suite bedrooms all infused

with light - but it's their master

bedroom that you will find truly

enchanting with its blue-andwhite theme and magnificent

bathroom with an original claw

foot bath set centre stage.

To the left of the orangery

sits a self-contained apartment

in what was once the 'maison

de gardien' and the stables are

further beyond.

The gardens are a veritable treat

for the eyes; roses

scramble up walls jockeying

for position, a pergola provides

sheltered seating overlooking the swimming pool and

Carelle's potager is filled to the

brim with both vegetables and

flowers alike.

Before moving to France

the Sherwoods lived in the

entrance. Once three separate

rooms, the welcoming

séjour now combines kitchen

and everyday living into one

space. Stripping back the old,

the Sherwoods discovered

beautiful beams (now lovingly

waxed and treated), as well as

an œil de boeuf window above

the front door and an enormous

fireplace.

Throughout the house

Carelle has used a soft palette

of colours harmonising luscious

fabrics with trompe l'oeil paint

effects and objets trouvés.
