What a stunningly beautiful house, inside and out and, of course, the lovely setting for gardens, pools etc.
Who bought it?
It’s such a stunningly beautiful estate, and I’m just curious because I’m the great great grandson of Hartland Law, Herbert Law’s older brother and partner in the many business ventures they developed together. So Herbert Law, the original owner and builder of Lauriston, was my great great grand uncle.
