house on the hill

Prominently located and with long reaching views across gardens and meadow towards the village church this property has much going for it. The Grade II listed timber framed core retains considerable character, although additions made during the early 20th century have covered up much of the earlier house and, while they provide well-scaled rooms, the exterior of the house lacks interest. 

Our brief is to add a new kitchen and drawing room with a master bedroom suite above. This will take the form of a new south facing garden elevation, which we are proposing in a refined classical style. To the rear of the site a range of agricultural sheds will be demolished and rebuilt creating a loggia, an additional bedroom, garden stores and an office.
