No one has this park-like setting - it’s like a private estate. The professional gardeners keep it immaculate. I get the fun of a beautiful garden but I don’t have to do the work anymore

We use the swimming pool, gymnasium, library, activities centre… we make use of pretty much everything here.

Don't leave it too late. You need to come in when you're really able to enjoy everything. Everyone that comes in tells us it's the best thing they've ever done.

The thing I love about our home is the kitchen. There’s a bay window at the front of the villa looking out over the garden. It’s bright, large and a happy place Jenny
