This secluded house and garden were formed by the fusion of 2 1930’s properties within a very neglected landscape. The brief was to create a landscape setting that brought the two houses together as one and to make a relaxed yet productive garden for family and friends to enjoy.
The garden centres on a large formal rectangular lawn with a children’s play area behind a heavy oak pergola to the west and a greenhouse with flower garden to the east.
The formal flower garden beds, edged in oak timbers, are criss-crossed by gravel paths. Herbaceous perennials, annuals and bulbs for colour and cutting are grown beneath old standard grape vines.
