The garden was reworked by landscape designer Michael Bates, including new timber decking around the existing swimming pool. “We had to clear parts of the garden, while other areas had to be built up to the house to make them more accessible,” says Polly, who is especially pleased with the design of the new courtyard at the front of the house. Framed by hedges, this intimate space is the perfect retreat during the peak of summer when there’s a sting of heat in the air.
