This time last year I was photographing the stunning Pitshill House which had undergone a massive restoration project. It was nominated for the Sotheby’s and Historic Houses Association restoration of the year awards which it narrowly missed out to Glynde Place.
This gem is buried within the South Downs National Park, West Sussex and the work done was truly astonishing. I loved this place as it was so perfect. I was walking around thinking “why can’t I achieve this level of finish in my house!?!”.
The thing that I liked most about Pitshill is that it was a sympathetic restoration. There weren’t any modern glass box extensions on the property and I think you could walk into it in a hundred years time and it would look just as it does now.
