The landowners of this exceptional 5 acre site, positioned within the prestigious Wentworth Estate, commissioned Ascot Design to fully explore the planning potential of the property.
Our brief was to create a design that secured the maximum amount of floor area achievable on the site, with an internal layout and appearance that would be considered at the very top end of the luxury house market.
The first challenge was to reposition the house centrally within the plot, as the original dwelling failed to make the best use of the heavily wooded plot. Our vision included the complete remodelling of existing topography and landscaping to create the perfect platform for the new house.
We negotiated the removal of many large trees that were approaching the end of their lifespan and justified this by proposing a significant re-planting strategy. This approach would ensure that the landscaped character of the location is protected and enhanced for the longer term.
In this new location the internal design and appearance of the house benefits from views in all directions, and significantly improves privacy and use of the gardens.
Having taken the scheme forward to achieve planning permission, the site was sold on to a developer at a value significantly higher than the markets expectations.
The new owners commissioned Ascot Design to prepare a detailed working drawing package and assist them through every stage of the construction process.
