Introduced in the 17th Century, courtyard garden squares have been a coveted feature of residential architecture in the UK for years, providing a communal centrepiece framed by properties. Keen to rediscover the charm of courtyard living for the 21st century, award-winning developer Spitfire Bespoke Homes has created a collection of beautifully designed new residences, in the historic grounds of the breath-taking Grade II listed Haseley Manor estate in Hatton, Warwickshire.
Once owned by names such as Kind Richard I, King Henry VIII and Mary Tudor, the grounds now offer new residents an address of distinction rich in history. Accessed via a gated entrance along a private carriage driveway and overlooking a tranquil courtyard garden, Manor Terrace is an imposing row of five residences designed to complement the manor itself. Within this beautiful landscaped setting, the formal courtyard garden and focal water feature provide a striking centrepiece to the estate, framed by footpaths, swathes of open green space, ornamental planting and trees.
Matt Vincent, Sales Director at Spitfire Bespoke Homes, comments: “Properties set around a traditional courtyard garden square represent a very British heritage and lend a feeling of community, as they provide a smart, landscaped centrepiece to be enjoyed by residents. Perfect for buyers seeking a calming refuge and feeling of exclusivity, Manor Terrace at Haseley Manor is a special collection of homes. The original architecture of the manor house has allowed us to create grand proportions and points of interest, offering striking exteriors and luxurious interiors.”
Drawing inspiration from the historic Haseley Manor, dating back to 1873, Manor Terrace comprises a row of five distinctive three and four-bedroom homes showcasing elements of Gothic and Elizabethan style architecture. Exteriors features includes stone mullioned bay windows, hexagonal towers, traditional chimneys and porches. Internally, number one to five Manor Terrace offer all the luxuries of modern living, including individually designed kitchens bespoke to Spitfire, along with fitted wardrobes and a host of premium brands such as Siemens, Villeroy&Boch, Porcelanosa and Hansgrohe.
In addition to the newly created formal courtyard, all houses at Manor Terrace benefit from private south-facing gardens as well as access to private parking facilities in the parking courtyard.
Alongside the collection of traditionally styled houses, the manor is being sensitively restored and converted into 13 impressive one, two and three-bedroom apartments, retaining the building’s existing character and period features, including a large central tower with a striking circular turret. All of the homes offer contemporary interiors and premium level specification that Spitfire is renowned for.
