ARCHITECTURE

Pemberley House’s owner has always had a love and admiration for Georgian architecture – so naturally, the plans he had drawn up by Altrincham Architects, Calderpeel (renowned for their work on ‘SuperHome’ projects, several of which PH Homes have collaborated on) very much reflected that.

The architectural detailing is nothing short of exquisite. From its grandiose entrance gates to its formal, symmetrical style, hipped roof and multi-paned sash windows, it could almost have been constructed in the mid-1700s such is the accuracy of its architecture.

The natural stone and brickwork; its Palladian columned entrance; its distinctive parapet, all are fine examples of their craft.

Pemberley House displays an exceptional balance: both of lovingly recreated classical Georgian architecture with contemporary interior features, and also unbridled luxury with practical family spaces.

INTERIOR DESIGN

From the very beginning, family has been at the heart of Pemberley House’s design. The owner had a vision that this would become a home not just for him and his partner, but for his extended family; the intention was for it to become a space that his son and daughter and their families, including four grandchildren, could enjoy too, and with that in mind, the interior layout combines classical formality with a contemporary flow.

Past the impressive space of the entrance hall, flanked on either side by a large, formal drawing room and state-of-the-art media room, Pemberley House opens up into a vast family area, with an ultra-modern island kitchen at one end, relaxing family space in the middle and dining room at the other, complete with contemporary bar for entertaining.

Both kitchen and family room open onto the back garden and are separated from the dining area by a mid-room open fire, while a door from the dining room leads directly to the steam room, gym and pool house.

LANDSCAPING

Once again, the outside of Pemberley House is focused on the practical needs of a family home rather than just appearance.

On arriving at the property, the hedging and lawns reflect the formal symmetry of Georgian style, while allowing ample space for parking.

At the back of the house though, the style is much more informal; planting has been much softer, with large patio areas for relaxing and a high proportion of the garden laid to lawn especially for young children to play on.

Clever touches can be seen out here too, such as the gardener’s store and W.C., both fully accessible without having to enter the house when the family are on holiday.
