What an amazing property! We did a commercial photoshoot here and the estate just has everything - big open grassy areas, pool, tennis court, garage workshop, full gym, patios, porches, wooded areas. The host was communicative and easy to coordinate with, as well as super friendly and accommodating. We appreciated them letting us move freely about the grounds as needed. Ample parking available. Definitely will be booking again!
