Restoration of Grade II house including new-build spa, pool and leisure complex.
This project, which spanned several years, started with the partial refurbishment of the original 17th C building which suffered from poor internal circulation, a compromised boot room and an awkward kitchen/dining room.
A fully glazed dining extension was created to take advantage of spectacular views onto the arboretum, the rear staircase was repositioned allowing the boot room to be doubled in size, and the master dressing room and ensuite bathroom were fully refurbished.
The second phase of the project involved a redesign of the gardens and the creation of a large new-build spa/gym/games room complex overlooking a heated pool set within a landscaped walled garden designed by Lizzy Tyler.
The new building was designed to respond to the local vernacular in which timber clad barns are constructed adjacent to Cotswold stone outbuildings.
The spa is a contemporary re-interpretation of an agricultural building featuring charred timber cladding and a zinc roof with concealed gutters to minimise visual clutter. Large, glazed doors, overlooking an ornamental lake, slide back into recesses within the walls, providing idyllic views from the gym and games room.
A pergola roof shelters an external dining area with a pizza oven, kitchen, and BBQ, whilst an open bar is included within the main house, accessed via wide sliding doors to link directly with the garden and pool on warm days.
