Rural estate, Oxfordshire

Project: Country Gardens & Landscapes, Residential, Selected Projects

A large estate in the heart of the Chilterns AONB, historically occupied since the Tudor period. 

With changes through the years, the residence is impressive, set within a large estate and enjoying spectacular clear views across the countryside towards Windsor Castle. 

Harris Bugg Studio was commissioned to create a new landscape to soften the addition of a new wing to the property.  

A new framework of gardens to surround the property and connect the architectural styles has been created.  The team designed, detailed and oversaw construction of the new landscape, including arrival driveway, a new walled garden, potting shed and productive garden, a series of entertaining terraces, a topiary garden, spring garden and broader interventions into the parkland.

Longer term, a succession planting plan for the magnificent heritage trees that are signatures to the parkland is being created.
