Great Westwood


Journey of discovery

RSL undertook the lengthy restoration of this 17-acre estate to restore cohesion within the formal garden areas and reinstate the original driveway leading up to the magnificent 18th century Grade II listed house.

RSL set out to establish the house bang at the centre of the design, while creating delightful vistas throughout. The driveway was enhanced with flowering cherry trees while the newly created front entrance was flanked with London plane trees and a hedging, giving the house more presence.

RSL had access to historical images and today the gloriously restored and improved gardens, including the Rhododendron Garden, the Italian Garden and the Chapel Garden, radiate harmoniously from the house and offer prolonged flowering architectural throughout the seasons.

The gardens, all discreetly hidden from each other, represent a joyous journey of discovery and constant source of pleasure for the owners.
