Redevelopment of historic house and landscape
We have been appointed by Kersfield Developments to prepare landscape proposals for the redevelopment of this historic Grade II* Listed house and new dwellings within the stable block annex.
The main house is a red brick, Jacobean baronial style building set in 2ha gardens and grounds adjacent to the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. The house, associated buildings and grounds are in the Leigh Woods Conservation Area, with sites of archeological significance within the grounds, including an Iron Age Hill Fort.
Our proposals set out to create a new and enduring series of gardens and landscape elements befitting of the house. The design focuses on expressing the ornate detailing found within the building interior into the formal gardens and terraces, complemented with contemporary planting and high quality natural materials. SUDS have been used in the modern residential annex development. Veteran trees have been identified and protected, and additional heritage and ecological valuable tree species have been specified to support the existing bat community.
