North East Facing
Existing FeaturesThe property, which is medieval in origins, has a Georgian facade with its entrance to the east of the house and an extended drive off the main frontage to the rear of the house.
The brief centred on creating a new drive allowing access to the house while creating a more enclosed, private courtyard to enhance the rural, Georgian backdrop. The client wanted the open area at the front of the house to offer more privacy from the nearby road and protection from the cold winds which can be a feature of the location. A simple, elegant design was chosen to harmonise with the surroundings, using Bradstone Old Town paving and granite setts. The principle plants used were Box, Hornbeam and Yew to provide the structural elements of the overall planting.
