Taste of Tuscany

Substantial country home sitting at the foot of the downs where traditional gardens embrace their surroundings. A combination of sawn and riven york stone with crushed and self-binding aggregates providing harmonious textures bringing differing identities to areas of the garden. Cropped face, coursed local stone is used to form a wind break wall providing large lawns, seating area, dining and play space protected from the elements. Formality around the house bleeds away into the natural surroundings. Straight lines become contoured, sawn stone becoming rocks and borders and clipped structural plants become wild wind tolerant natives. The grounds are full of features including a spectacular stone clad office cut into the hill side.
