Located in an historic village, this Grade 2 listed property had undergone an extensive renovation throughout and includes a beautiful new orangery facing the South Downs.
Phil Allen Design were invited to prepare concept designs and tender documentation for the creation of a contemporary family garden set across the estate of 0.8 hectare (1.9 acres). The design focused on creating an elegant framework of spaces including a pool garden with bespoke pergola, main lawn with rich swathes of perennial planting, upper dining terraces and lower wild lawns with orchard and fire pit seating.
Plants are chosen for colour but also for shape and texture. Stripped bare, stalks, stems, and seed pods will, during winter, become architectural elements in the garden. Evergreen shrubs in the background of beds and perennials in the foreground will create distinct visual focal points in the gardens.
Opening summer 2019.
