How many properties boast this kind of setting in grounds including large private woodland, a walled cottage garden and lawns?

It is situated in the corner of Bylaugh Park Estate, where Bylaugh Hall itself sits, currently undergoing a programme of renovation.

The Shooting Box dates to 1850 and it has been extended to create a unique home.
