Georgian Manor House
Located within a Conservation Area, this 19th Century Georgian manor house sits next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
When we first visited the property, the house had been recently refurbished, but the garden required a complete redesign. Over time, parts of the original garden had been previously sold, which left the remaining garden feeling disjointed and at odds with the house
The front of the house felt open and exposed, with the approach cramped and awkward. Our Master Plan creates a soft but formal approach to the house, enclosing the front garden, screening the view into the property from an adjacent public foot path. We have centred the drive on the front door and pretty façade of the house, adding new lawns on either side which direct cars to park away from the front of the house.
We removed some tall walls and demolished an ugly 1980’s barn to create a sense of space around the house. This will reveal a lovely old flint wall, providing the opportunity to create a pretty rose garden. Our design features a new Productive Garden with an Alitex glasshouse and raised beds, including various details, such as, a new paving detail around an existing well and a tile crease cap to the existing historic walls.
Our Master Plan features a large terrace around the house surrounded by Lavender hedges, a cutting garden, pool garden, Box hedged parterre, new lawns, herbaceous borders, meadows and an orchard.
Much of the garden has already been created with the pool garden now underway.
