Lee Boyd were first approached by Mr and Mrs Wilson in early 1999, when the opportunity to buy Bonnington House first arose. Our brief was to refurbish the house into a family home, while retaining and restoring the historical features of the Grade A Listed building and designing the decor in keeping with the period the house was built. During the development of our design, we liaised closely with Historic Scotland and the Garden History Society, as our client also wished us to restore the original features of the garden. The project also includes the design of an extension to the building, which is in keeping with the original house. The project was carefully phased, and was completed in December 2001. The house later went on to win the 'Refurbishment/Conservation' Category in Channel 4's 'Britain's Best Home'.
