GEORGIAN HOUSE | HAMPSHIRE
This property and grounds had previously been used as military offices during WWII and as a result, much of the grounds contained large areas of concrete and military-related remnants. Together with Ian Adam Smith-Architects, the house and gardens were designed in unison to gain better connectivity between the two.
A formal potager has been created within the walled garden, planted with flowers, herbs, vegetables and fruit. A new glasshouse and fruit cage have also been incorporated. An espalier Pear walk divides the potager from the lower end of the walled garden, the location for a new swimming pool.
A wildflower meadow framing the long drive and facing the west terrace was created to connect the garden with the adjoining parkland and countryside.
At the rear of the house, a small woodland garden connects to the tennis court, orchard and woodlands beyond. These are slowly being stocked with true native English Bluebells.
