Stockton House is a Grade I listed private country mansion, the original section of which dates back to Elizabethan times. Described by Pevsner as a ‘fine example of a Wiltshire Elizabethan house with especially good interior.’ The project included survey and specification of conservation grade repairs to the house and a new build pool house within the grounds along with the drainage design. The new swimming pool and pool pavilion have been sympathetically placed next to an existing historic garden wall to reduce its visual impact within the grounds. This has allowed the design team to create a very modern sleek building which has been helped by high quality finishes. The presence of an existing outdoor pool was discovered and made some interesting structural challenges for coordination of new foundations. Liaison with the water authority and environment agency was required due to the high water quality classification.
