It's also the perfect place for a wedding, or two or three...it's hard to keep up with the number of cars headed down the main street. However if you want privacy and elegance, and space...then take a look at the private houses available for lease for just such an occasion.
Saturday's wedding started with a long driveway framed in birch (whose stained glass window leaves are hard to ignore), maples, oaks and camelias. Lamp posts with a single cream ribbon showed the way towards the house...the old lawn visible through the branches of the old sycamore (boy was that a treat) gave way to a tennis court, pool house and gabled path covered in wisteria.
Then there was the house...sandstone and brick, plate glass windows and a red tiled roof. The whole scene was set for a romantic day, even before I set foot in the house and beheld the bride's dress, and the busy family members keeping children entertained, while the bridal party prepared speeches, eyelashes and bottles of vodka.
