Indigo are delighted to be part of the experienced team working at Cholderton House, a Grade II* listed house dating back to the late 17th Century set within a 9.5 Ha estate.
The proposals, for new owners, are very extensive and feature improvements to the main house, the restoration and conversion of historically important but derelict outbuildings – including a charming 18th Century granary – and the creation of new state of the art stables to replace poor quality buildings from the late 20th Century.
Our work is multi-faceted and includes the layout of a new entrance to improve the approach to the house through an area of parkland, and significant enhancements to the setting and surroundings of the house with sensitively laid out lawns and courtyard spaces.
Central to the external improvements is a dramatic and extensive restoration of the walled garden, and its associated listed structures, which have been featureless and largely unused for years. The restoration draws heavily on careful historic research and will retain and enhance the important fabric. The overall investment is significant and will ensure the important heritage of the estate is preserved for the future, while providing an attractive and practical living environment fit for the 21st Century.
This is another project for us working with Atlas Planning and Richmond Bell Architects as well as Simul Consultants, the specialist heritage consultants. This is also one of a number of similar schemes of exceptional quality that we are working on currently, within the estates and private gardens sector.
