A single fig vine (Ficus pumila) planted in the mid 1860s now covers all the interior walls and beams of the structure.
The first Orangeries were created in Italy in the 15th. century. They were created to protect much prized citrus trees.
I think this room is so very beautiful, I can see myself in most of these spaces.
How wonderful this would be with a view of the ocean, or mountains and a huge lake !?
This looks like me. A space I would live in , cook in, hold court in with my nearest and dearest loved ones. Certainly, if I walked into a house that was for sale , and this was part of the kitchen...I would want to buy it.
What a great idea to have an Orangery roof...in almost any room.
Would you like a room like this one ?
I am crazy for this!
This is charming.
