Charles Roberts Studios is proud to have completed an architectural visualisation for a new house proposed within a historic walled garden on a private estate in the Leicestershire countryside. The visualisation was created to support a planning application by a firm of award-winning architects.

The estate is home to a Grade II* listed country house and an important Grade I listed family chapel dating back to the 14th century. The new design is for a house that replaces three existing estate houses. The 6,000 sq ft home features underground parking and a refurbished gardener's cottage that serves as a guest cottage. The house sits on an elevated plot overlooking beautiful parkland.

The contemporary design features bronze-clad elevations and bricks that reflect the palette of the existing walled garden. A glazed link connects the new home and guest accommodation. The project entailed extensive consultation with Historic England, the local planning authority, and navigating through a complex web of ecological constraints.
