In the late 1990s it had settled as a rather tired Georgian creation, not without charm, but barely suited to its owner’s international lifestyle and business. After a period of getting a feel for the house and its many outbuildings, she asked a local architect, a specialist in heritage work and the local vernacular, to advise on what would become a major transformation.

One important factor was the fact that the house should age well. Lime plaster, sawn green oak and reclaimed flagstones immediately changed the interior, along with the sensitive removal of walls, allowing a better use of space. Small rooms and passages were swept away, windows enlarged or lowered, and a brand new bedroom wing was added. Opulent fabrics, Asian furniture and specially commissioned furniture combine to create an unusually stylish interior
