Ascot Lodge

by Maurizio Pellizzoni

A rich history imbues this residence with a true sense of narrative, and Pellizzioni created the interior scheme to help this Berkshire Grade II listed building carry on telling it's story.

Built in the 1400s, residents have included King James I, the son of Mary Queen of Scots. The notorious Lutyens Ballroom with its signature domes was built in 1912 by the revered architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, extending the home and giving it even more personality.

Pellizzioni's modern day updates were limited, as much of the original features had to be maintained, including ceiling cornicing, windows and floors, doorways and fireplaces. Pellizzioni's refurbishment project took place in the Georgian Room, the Ballroom, the Master Bedroom and two of the Guest Bedrooms.

Integrating the elegance of the antiques and family heirlooms into a modernised space was a challenge, but Pellizzioni has created a stunning space that brings the residence into the present day, while respecting the original architectural details.

Each room has its own individual style, inspired by a piece of art or antique object associated with the history of the property. Each artwork was framed by master framer John Jones, giving each work a sense of gravitas. This residence is a pleasing combination of bespoke furniture, Ralph Lauren signature pieces and antiques, with soft furnishings from De Le Cuona.
