Country Estate Elegance

Julie Chapman is our very talented Head of Design. Her last project whilst working with her previous employer was to create a unique, luxurious family home to act as the main residence for a busy, jet setting family.

The original stone exterior would be retained and enhanced to keep the property in harmony with the local landscape, and a new wing was added to accommodate a state of the art gym and spa complex.

The services of internationally respected landscape architects Wilkinson White were commissioned to transform the grounds that had to include a formal lawn for marquees, a helipad as well as considered spaces for the owner’s collection of sculptures.

The client had very specific requirements regarding the use of their interior space. First and foremost it had to function as a family home. However, due to their lifestyle there were other prerequisites. The property needed to provide good entertaining spaces, a fully equipped working study, two suites for visiting guests, a Master Suite, six family bedrooms with en-suites, a children’s wing as well as informal family living areas. The art collection, which the family had acquired over many years, was also a major consideration in the final design.

The existing house was completely gutted and a new staircase designed and built. The rooms were reconfigured and repurposed to enhance the flow of the property. Working in conjunction with the appointed builder, M&E and AV consultants emphasis was given to ensuring that every detail was considered with regard to both function and aesthetic.

The result was a truly stunning property, which the owners take pride and delight in.
