Horsham, West Sussex
‘The Arboretum’ is a two-storey Victorian house constructed in 1897 by Charles Lucas in a polite version of the Wealden Vernacular style. The property has faux timber framed gables and tile hanging.
The Arboretum is located on a site of archaeological significance and an archaeological watching brief had to be in place during the works in order that any remains relating to the Park, the double-cube gardens or the use of the land before the creation of the parkland, could be identified and properly recorded.
The works consisted of a two-storey extension to the north east consisting of an enlarged kitchen/breakfast room, two further bedrooms and a first floor extension to the north, which accommodates the master en suite.
