No wonder that the property was purchased so quickly. Julie Andrews lived in a nice house, located in an unbelievably picturesque area. In the morning the house was filled with bright sun light and in the evening it was full of beautiful nature music – bird singing and rustling of the grass.
The garden around the house (which was designed by Nancy Powers) looks really marvelous, but the building itself is even better. Built in traditional style, the home of Oscar-winning actress consists of four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The mansion includes a living-room and family-room as well. There’s spa and a swimming pool on the territory of the living house.
