Cow­drey’s tow­er­ing tulip will bowl you over

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - News -

WHAT has cricket got to do with the tallest tulip tree in the UK? Well, the tree that’s re­puted to be the tallest — and they can grow up to about 40ft in this coun­try — is in the gar­den at Chris Cow­drey’s home, right, in Kent.

The ex-Eng­land cricket cap­tain, 59, in­set, whose fa­ther Colin also fa­mously led the na­tional team and whose son Fabian, 24, is the lat­est mem­ber of the clan to play for Kent, is sell­ing the Grade II-listed Ge­or­gian prop­erty for £2.5 mil­lion with Jack­sonS­tops & Staff. Cow­drey’s other son, mu­si­cian Julius, Fabian’s twin, stars in TV’s Made in Chelsea. The fivebed­room house sits in ex­ten­sive grounds with a swim­ming pool, ten­nis court and per­mis­sion to con­vert the coach house into a two-bed­room home. Lon­don Vic­to­ria is 40 min­utes away by train from Sevenoaks sta­tion.
