A Timeless Country Home

This latest design has sympathetically brought together two generations to create a lovely and tradional country home.

The inclusion of a formal Parterre garden and subtle use of natural and native stone has created a timeless and mature feel to this newly completed home, while the striking Pavilion with its outdoor kitchen and lounge have developed a garden for modern outdoor living.

The striking split level terrace and water feature have created a seamless link between the lovely interior and the garden allowing home and garden to become as one.


Subtle use of specimen and semi mature planting have combined to give the space three dimensional depth and character right from day one, but designed to develop over years to come

The subtle perimeter planting also allows the home to sit comfortably in this lovely rural location.

The Natural Extension to the Home

This lovely new design has truely created the natural extension to the home.

The subtle Blue Limestone terrace inviting one from the home to the Outdoor Lounge complete with its centre piece Fire Table creating the perfect opportunity to relax and entertain in comfort and a lovely warm and inviting atmosphere.

The central Pergola feature not only adds three dimensional depth and character but also invites and leads one to the stunning Pavillion housing the outdoor kitchen,

the perfect place to gather, cook, eat and entertain at any time or season.

The gorgeous stone walls not only add a lovely extra dimension, they also subtly dealt with this sloping site and created a usable space that genuinely created...

a natural extension to the home

A stunning bridge of Armagh stone crosses the stream and forms the central and inviting focal point.

The use of semi mature planting helping to give the garden its timeless style and character.
