Hampstead
Now successfully maintained by the Greater London Council Parks Department, the site consists of buildings located on a high sandy rise overlooking Hampstead Heath below. The original plans of the garden portray a strong axis running from the house and incorporate a lawn bordered by herbaceous planting with steps to canals, lily ponds and a central fountain figure.The pergola feature is particulary impressive.
