Colvin and Moggridge are advising on the landscape rejuvenation around this important Palladian mansion during its conversion into a 5* Hotel with underground Spa and outdoor Swimming Pool.
Built for the 3rd Duke of Marlborough by Leadbetter in the 1750s and ornamented with English landscape parkland by Lancelot Brown in the 1760s, including his recently restored lake, the Grade II* listed house and gardens required a thorough understanding of the spirit of the site, its unique history and the client’s aspirations for its future.
Layers of historic development were teased apart to make an assessment of site significance, and sensitive tree protection and ecological considerations were evaluated alongside the exacting requirements of a 5* hotel operator. The skilful handling of these landscape constraints within the project brief contributed to successful development decisions.
“We are pleased to have helped secure these latest planning consents following months of careful development with the client, design team, English Heritage and the Local Authority Conservation Officer, and we look forward to works starting on site.”
