As with every project, the team at Haddonstone applied meticulous attention to detail throughout the project by working closely with our client to discuss their vision. It was critical that each stone element was produced to the highest specification, with the utmost level of precision and the choice of stonework was key to ensure the properties were flawless from every angle.
The main property is a handsome 8,450 sq. ft (785 m2), seven bedroom, three-storey redbrick mansion featuring modern, luxurious interiors, marble flooring and large, open living spaces. Our client was keen to ensure the outside façade and the rest of the exterior were similarly elegant and refined and matched the hand made bricks and roof tiles selected for the property.
An elegant William Kent door surround, featuring intricate moulding detail, provides a grand entrance – the scale of the door surround was modified and specifically crafted for the property. To the rear, a Haddonstone portico incorporating an upper and lower cornice, an architrave and two columns, surround the back door, leading to the rear patio and gardens.
Adjacent to the main property is The Lodge, a single storey property designed with the same amount of detail and refinement, including an elegant cast stone portico, sills, window and door surrounds. The third building on the estate is a double fronted, double garage, again built in a similar style.
A variety of plain-ended Haddonstone window heads, sills and surrounds are featured throughout the design of both the main residence and The Lodge.
As is often seen with Queen Anne-style architecture, further principal and highly symmetrical details were achieved by incorporating a stylish balustraded parapet wall along the top of the property. This completely bespoke key design feature integrates balusters, a plinth and rail course, copings and cornice underneath.
The Haddonstone Eton College fountain and pool surround with conch shell vases completes the project by adding an attractive centrepiece which connects the landscape between the three buildings on the estate.
