Project 900

This large new country house, one of the largest classical designs seen in The Cotswolds since the First World War, was commissioned to replace the surviving fragment of a substantial mansion by Repton which was largely demolished in the 1930s.

This exceptional planning consent was the result of detailed discussion with the Conservation officer, who actively encouraged a design of appropriate scale and visual impact within the exceptional parkland landscape, which has survived in large part intact.

The house design is deliberately respectful of the massing of the original Regency House, with a central block and spreading wings.

In a particularly beautiful part of the parkland, a Gothic-folly dining pavilion was also proposed.
