English Countryside

Knight Frank LLP is an estate agency, residential and commercial property consultancy founded in London by John Knight, Howard Frank and William Rutley in 1896. Knight Frank together with its New York-based affiliate Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is one of the world’s largest global property consultancies.

GStudio secured a year-long collaborative partnership with Knight Frank to champion their most desirable locations within the Super Prime category. The task was to build upon the lifestyle associated with such properties focusing on the lasting emotional connections each location offers.

The English countryside boasts a tranquil landscape and the perfect environment to bring up your family through generations. The team chose the picturesque Devonshire countryside and the magnificent Chanters House, the perfect backdrop to tell this story.

In 1796, it was bought by James Coleridge, a Lieutenant Colonel in the army and eldest brother of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. They, along with their ten other siblings, were raised in Ottery St. Mary after their father became headmaster of The Kings School and moved the family there in 1760. The Chanters House remained in the Coleridge family for 238 years, before being bought by its current owner in 2006.
