Not that you’ll be getting that. At least, there’s no mention of the furnishings being included in the deal. But the house itself, which part of the Courtyards development, should be a great blank canvas if you want to recreate that era.

We don’t know much about the development, aside from what the agent describes. According to the agent, each house is ‘cleverly designed around a number of courts’, which enjoy the ‘serene atmosphere and intimate scale found in the Courts of the Cambridge Colleges’. Each house is also designed for both privacy and for views over the gardens and landscaped communal areas.
