The brief was to provide a purpose built traditional home on the grounds of an existing farm that would accommodate and adapt to the demands of a modern family. The existing incongruous extension was removed and a new wing was constructed to accommodate guest bedrooms/facilities. The scale and materials of the extension where carefully chosen to be sympathetic to the remaining historic section of the farmhouse. The grounds have been remodeled and landscaped and include tennis court and swimming Pool.
The overall approach has been one of continual attention to detail and the house provides a understated backdrop to the clients own particular elegant style of decoration and fittings. Particular credit for this project is due to the commitment of the Client and the contractor.
