The winding road that takes you uphill doesn't let you steal more than little glimpses of the spectacular beauty below. Once you're up there, apart from the perpetual mist-sprayed air around you, what you see below is a valley enclosed by hills on all sides.
From what was an exclusive, privately-owned summer mansion during The Raaj, Sherlock, more than a century later, still stands in its original architectural splendour as if mocking the concept of age & time.

With the refurbished lawns, the entire ambience to make it what it really is - Holmesian.
