Field House is a new-build, replacement dwelling in a sensitive green belt location, designed to take advantage of the countryside setting and views.

By capitalising on volume increases to the existing dwelling through a series of incremental Permitted Development schemes, the home better suits its site and context. By raising a previously ground bearing floor area into a cantilever it can now encapsulate long ranging views from the master bedroom. To create a contemporary rural aesthetic the materials include a zinc roof, pre-weathered burnt timber cladding and brick.

At ground floor level the living, dining and kitchen area, a snug and a boot room are arranged around a central wooden stair, along with a small entry hall and bathrooms. Below, the basement houses a cinema room, plant room and store. Field House’s L-shaped first floor has three en-suite bedrooms.

Landscaping has been designed by renowned British Garden Designer Andy Sturgeon who created three distinct gardens: a wild flower walk to the pool, a formal crescent-shaped striped lawn and south-facing gravel garden. The garden takes advantage of views across the Thames valley to Hedsor House and Cliveden, as a result of it being elevated and levelled with excavation material from the basement.
