Take a tour of this refined Regency home

After seven years of living in this Regency house in Stockbridge, the owners decided it was time for an update. Not sure how to reconfigure the house and garden themselves, the couple enlisted the help of both an interior designer and landscaper.

“The first thing that was noticeable was a lack of a proper entrance,” said the designer. “The family and visitors barely used the front door; instead, they came in through the back and directly to the kitchen, which was not the effect a house of this size and style should give.”

The resolution was to build a half-glazed extension outside the kitchen, on what was a rather dank terrace. Other reconfigurations included changing the layout of the conservatory, adding a wine cellar and most significantly, reworking the master bedroom to create the best aspect for enjoying the outlook over the garden to the valley.
