RBA designed a masterplan and extensive works to the buildings across the grounds for this large, Grade II* Listed Wiltshire country house for private clients who wished to recreate the original spirit of the estate. RBA produced a scheme to improve the site layout, and maintain and upgrade the estate to modern standards whilst being sensitive to the past.
A new stable block was designed to the west of the existing indoor riding school to provide stabling for up to 20 horses. It includes two self-contained cottages, laundry and tack rooms and storage and work space. A new canter track and automated horse walker sit adjacent to the stable block.
The existing cottages will become two-bedroom guest accommodation and additional living/gym space and the Coach House will be converted for office use. The project also included renovations to the interior of the main, 8-bedroomed house and sensitive new landscaping across the estate.
Wiltshire Council granted full planning permission and Listed Building Consent for the project in August 2021.
