Who’s not real estate stalking these days? Recently we spotted a particularly intriguing listing, via the The Modern House. Situated in Elmbridge, England, the 4,200-square-foot five-bedroom Georgian-period home rests on seven acres of manicured gardens and woodland. The goal of the renovation was to create a feeling of a “newly built” Georgian inspired home. On the outside, that meant updating the brickwork and facade, restoring the windows and chimneys, excavating a new gravel driveway, and updating and nursing the formal gardens back to life. Inside, the goal was to create a modern French look.
The owners enlisted a team of experts for the project. They sought architect Francis Terry for informal advice. They worked closely with the Rose Uniacke showroom team, in Pimlico. Barrington (specialists in heritage decoration and restoration) and finishes expert Damien Thompson were commissioned, as were countless other professionals—including a topiarist.
