Valley Brook Estate is an in-town oasis of beauty and tranquility, reminiscent of Cheekwood.

 

This classic 1940s manor house has been expertly restored and updated, with British-influenced European design.

The grounds have been transformed into spectacular English gardens that center around the pool and fountains and extend throughout the property to each of the two gated entrances.

 

An entertainer’s dream, the estate’s large, open rooms, expansive gourmet kitchen and endless terraces framed by the pool and lush gardens can easily accommodate an intimate dinner for 12 or reception for 300.
