Client: Stanley Seeger (the late)
Architect & Interior Designer: Casson Conder
Landscape Designer: Bartholomew Landscaping
In 2006, Bartholomew’s were invited by the renowned bibliophile and art collector Stanley Seeger to help complete the design of his gardens at Greenway Manor in Devon. The grade 11 Listed Devon manor house, with a 123-acre estate, was the latest project that this very private client had undertaken and true to character, his demands were modest but exacting. He asked for the history of the building and surrounding landscape to be respected, traditional crafts and materials to be used and above all, that the quality of the scheme was nothing short of perfection.
No expense was to be spared on this project, with the attention that was always applied to detail that similar to what formed by the vision that marked his restoration of Sutton Place. Stanley Seeger worked very closely with Barry Burrows supported by the professional team at Bartholomew’s to achieve something truly breathtaking.
