In the kitchen extension, sleek stone-coloured units sit alongside a rustic farmhouse kitchen table and open oak shelves. These are piled with earthenware confit pots and Le Parfait jars, all picked up during Rauter’s time in France. Divertimenti sells classic kitchen equipment.
Hedge? The grass used for these amazing feathery hedges is Pennisetum alopecuroides Hamelm. Maintenance is easy, the plants are just cut down in spring with shears and then they will grow to acheive their full potention by the end of summer. Wow.
