The material palette draws inspiration from the main hall with a series of hand-crafted bronze roofs set on ironstone facades and framed by ponds. The stone is worked by hand and carefully selected from quarries and reclaimed sources. The south-facing terrace opens out onto a central lawn bordered by a fine contemporary planting scheme created by garden designer Rupert Golby. Planted species include yew and cornus controversa trees. Fresh water ponds either side of the terrace frame the entrance to the house.
The interiors, developed in conjunction with interior designer Ann Boyd, balance a refined and intimate living space with an appropriate setting for entertaining. Bedroom wings flank a large pavilion room with a reclaimed brick fireplace at its centre, opening out directly onto a York stone terrace. Slim-framed sliding doors are set on a flush threshold providing seamless continuity between indoors and out.
