Heytesbury House
 
  Heytesbury House Estate Wiltshire

The important Grade 2 listed mansion of 25,000 sq ft was designed by James Wyatt in 1782 and re-modelled in 1820 by Sir John Soane. It was the family home of the poet Siegfield Sassoon who lived there until his death in 1967.

Derelict and damaged by fire, Heytesbury was purchased from George Sassoon in 1996. Sabre completed a full restoration after obtaining 'Enabling Consent' to convert the mansion into two large wings with two penthouses and four mews houses.

The 'Servants Courtyard' was converted into four houses and the stables and Coach Houses were converted into three family houses. Eight new houses were built in 'The Walled Garden'. At the main entrance to the estate two new Lodge houses were designed and built from Bath stone.

The twenty-eight acre parkland setting of the 'Heritage Asset' was restored and a 'Landscape Bund' including eight thousand trees was designed and constructed to screen the estate from the adjacent main road.
