This stylish, Grade II-listed property, surrounded by stunning Devon countryside, has substantial gardens and land. Cameron was enlisted to improve several aspects of the landscape design. Having noted that the property is currently disengaged from the landscape, Cameron created a more coherent design plan to link the property to its wider environs.
Firstly by widening the driveway and lining it with a collection of trees, the drive will have a greater sense of gravitas. The existing ha-ha will remain, however the layout linking the line of the ha-ha to the line of the driveway will be re-designed.
The front terrace will be extended for better purpose and designed to engage more with the landscape. The existing paving will be replaced with a reclaimed York stone to match the high-end finish inside. The west terrace – currently a wasted space – will be transformed into an extension of the drawing room for entertaining and relaxing in, dressed with collections of free-standing pots and plants.
A small sheltered terrace next to the walled garden is ideal for cosy al fresco dining and will have an abundance of pretty pots and a large dining table and chairs. The walled garden is a fantastic area to be used for parties and has an existing lawn, however we will build in a pathway around the perimeter and introduce a cutting bed.
