The Grove

Located in the heart of the old village, the house’s history is intertwined with that of the area and the many other listed buildings located in and around the village.

In 2005, Camillin Denny Design were approached by the new owners of one of these remaining houses. Having bought the property from a well-known pop musician, the owners wanted to remove much of the previous owners eclectic style and replace it with a more considered, quiet contemporary approach that respected the original character of the property. They were also keen to remove a 1980’s side extension to the house and to replace it with a more stylish space that would be used as a family room and connect the interior spaces to the fantastic gardens to the rear of the property. Mark Camillin was the practice’s director responsible for the project and the practice set about researching the characteristics of note within the property. Research in local council archives, the listed building documentation for the property, the local community archives and in books and other literature regarding the original architect and the property led to a comprehensive understanding of the history of the house.
