New country house
A replacement house is on a site that borders a Grade I Listed Park and Gardens. The existing house and the cluster of seven outbuildings have sprawled out across the site in the last 50 years. The new house will provide a more concise and unified family home more suited to the needs of the client. It will be constructed to an exceptionally high standard such that it will provide a legacy of a house and landscape which will uphold an exemplary demonstration of 21st century design and sustainability – one which quietly challenges current expectations of country houses.
The design has been developed with careful consideration of both the way that the family will live and grow, and in response to a strong desire to reduce space that will not be used frequently; so often found in older houses of similar external character. The family have a desire to promote a holistically sustainable approach to the building of this house, from locally sourced materials, careful design of fabric, through to the use of integrated technology and on-site energy production. They also have an aspiration to improve and develop ecological diversity of local environs and to build on the wider Estate’s principles of stewardship of land and nature.
