Montrose House gardenside

One of the benefits of visiting open gardens is that you can get a different view of the house too. The front of Montrose House is grand but also dark and stark with just a small paved area in front of it and then the tall wall that keeps Petersham Road at bay. The rear of the house, facing the large garden, is also grand and combines this grandeur with sunshine and greenery.
