The Moat House
A show stopping landscape that would compliment both the new and period architecture
Resolving the poor connection between house and garden
The original entrances of this Grade II* listed village manor house had become disused.
Architects Hetreed Ross were tasked with improving the relationship between The Moat House and its garden. Access to the 900m2 garden needed a solution as the original entrances to this 14th century house had become disused.
The solution resolved the rear entrance, improved the views of the garden and gave direct access to a new terrace.
Selby Landscapes were contracted through Wraxall Builders to install a show-stopping landscape that would compliment the new and period architecture.

Space for the family that was previously lacking.
All challenges were overcome through close collaboration and consultation
On the new terrace, we installed a built-in outdoor kitchen complete with gas supplied BBQ and hot tub. This area of the garden is made for entertaining and outdoor living. Smart Home Technology experts Brown Hen Solutions were brought in to install a high-tech sound, light and WiFi system.
A working garden is accessed through a grand oak pergola centred on the property. It grounds the property within the new landscape, giving the property the garden it has always deserved. We planted small yew hedging, wildflower turf and normal rowland turf, leaving the clients to install their own planting scheme once the project was complete.
Our hard-landscaping team completed the project with paved entrances, resin bound parking bays and a south cerney gravel driveway.
