The Old Vicarage in Petersham

The Old Vicarage in Sudbrook Lane has joined the National Garden Scheme and I was not going to miss an opportunity to explore.

The house is large yet manages to look less so through its good proportions and the amount of open space around it. A large part of that open space is its garden that has had a lot of time, care and money spent on it.

There are the pretty formal gardens next to the house and you can see these clearly from the wooded hillock in the corner of the garden adjoining Richmond Park. Elsewhere there is a tennis court, a duck pond and a rose garden.
