Traditional Manor House

This traditionally styled new manor house enjoys uninterrupted views across the rolling countryside of the north Hampshire downs. With entertaining friends a key element for this commission, the customer had three features high on the list of priorities for the outdoor environment. Firstly the roof terrace, a large sun soaked space with its commanding views across the downs in all directions. The area was boarded with durable coloured composite decking edged for safety as well as visual impact with glass balustrade surrounds. Secondly, at garden level a number of circular flagged areas were linked together to provide a seamless path and terracing feature adjoining the rear facade, each area transitioning from one vista over the countryside to another. Of particular importance was one special view from the one of the larger circular terraces providing perspective on a distant focal point. The surrounding grass abutted the house by way of a crushed stone border path to provide an ordered transition from open field and at the same time delineate and give a sense of place for the house. Finally, Haddon Stone balustrades were additionally installed to the front drive to help provide a fitting grand entrance to this unique property
