The brief for this 16th century Grade II listed manor house was to completely redesign it to fuse with its gardens to create a contemporary family space for living and entertaining.
A new eighteen-hundred square foot extension was added to house a new kitchen, dining and living space and large sliding glass doors connect the house to its seven acre park-like gardens. Original features discovered during the renovation were left uncovered and modern oak trusses were set into the exposed Cotswold stone walls to create a link with the past. A glass atrium now floods the ground floor with light. The use of bleached-oak flooring, limestone and dark wood in the kitchen along with double-layered linen curtains and textured rugs, soften the expansiveness of the vaulted space.
The house has been brought into the 21st century with all the amenities of modern-day life whilst retaining much of its beautiful history. See more in the gallery below. To read more about this renovation project, please find the Oxfordshire Limited Edition article here.
