Arts & Crafts Country House

Situated on a unique woodland plot outside Henley-on-Thames – within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – this impressive Arts and Crafts dwelling with ancillary outbuildings, replaces a former, low quality house of 1940’s design.

This statement property – designed in direct response to the grandeur of the site, in terms of scale and form – is composed of distinct elements, with varied eaves and ridge heights, and scale and mass forming a clear building hierarchy.

With apertures internally framing views of the unique woodland site – where three principal avenues form a stunning trident vista, cut into the heavily screened surroundings – the façade also reflects the scenic setting when viewed externally, where expansive glazed openings reflect and mirror the woodland context, contributing to a feeling of openness.

A carefully curated, restricted palette of high-quality materials – with red brickwork base, slate tiled roof, self-coloured render, cut stone detailing and glass clad elevations and roof structure – ensures this exemplar country house sensitively responds to, and positively contributes towards, its large rural setting.
