Residential Architecture

To begin this most Herculean task, Richard and Rick began by demolishing the 1950’s cottage and replacing it with a neo-barn of oak, glass and concrete! At the entrance to the Estate sits the Lodge, a 4000 Sq. Ft. gatehouse. Within the grounds are two other faithfully restored 18th century buildings; Whithurst Cottage and The Potting Shed, a small stable block and an agricultural barn.

Following the completion of the Lodge work began on Whithurst House. Designed by Kit Rae Scott as a neo-classic Jacobean style replica mansion house it sits fort like facing the four acre lake and amidst the rolling lawns and woodlands that are Whithurst Park. Completed in 2004 the house has gracious proportions, rooms are large with hallways to welcome and assemble in.
