Palladian villa, Sussex
This is the third house on the site in 50 years. ADAM Architecture was asked to design a new replacement scheme, and created an elegant render and stone Palladian house. The main section of the building is arranged over two principal floors with an attic above and a swimming pool within the lower ground floor. At each end of the principal section are double height cylindrical pavilions, from which square, single storey wings radiate. This design allows the house to make best use of the views out over the lake in the valley below. The public, entrance front contains a pedimented central stone bay with pilasters in the Doric order. The rear elevation has the same central projection in the Ionic order over a rusticated stone base, reflecting its more rustic position overlooking the grounds.
