Architects Mathewson Waters Exterior

Where: North Wiltshire

Background and Client brief

To create an individual and substantial new home within an historic walled garden.


The site is in a location where planning permission for new houses would not normally be allowed. It was essential, therefore, to undertake extensive local consultation and to formulate a robust justification in relation to the benefits of the proposed house in securing a custodian for the upkeep of the Edwardian walled garden.


Influenced by Edwardian arts and crafts architecture, but with the use of natural stone walling and bespoke dressed stone details. Large modern windows were incorporated, but with an emphasis on maintaining proportion. The client has installed a biomass boiler to provide heating and hot water.
