An elevated site overlooking the North Cornish coast is the spectacular setting for this new family home. The 3 storey house has been set back into the hillside and is embraced by the new landscape and gardens. A series of terraces and garden rooms are linked by a grand slate stairway planted on either side with coastal plants.

 

The main spine of the gardens is an impressive stepped wall, clad with stone and redwood slats; it screens neighbouring properties whilst framing key views and creates shelter from the strong winds. The lower part of the site has been completely redesigned to incorporate sculptural wildflower terraces and an oval lawn for games and recreation.
