Lower Gorwell House has been the family home since 1976. In that time they have painstakingly restored much of the extensive gardens, which along with music and art, are their respective passions. Dr and Mrs Marston are now embarking on a new chapter in their relationship with the house and setting by moving into Upper Gorwell House.
Their aim is rstly to refurbish and extend that property to better suit their needs and secondly, to restore and reinstate the existing outbuildings at the top of the walled garden to form ancillary space.
The design proposals have been developed to preserve and enhance the existing landscape and listed building and to ensure that the new elements remain subservient to the main house.
