Another great example of reimagining existing spaces as opposed to extending. This beautiful, whole home refurbishment consisted of a kitchen sited within three previous rooms, a utility room, a wine room, a bar and a master suite. The Victorian hunting lodge was stripped back to the bare stone and rebuilt with modern insulation and heating before being lovingly restored with bespoke moulded plaster coving and timber wall panelling throughout.

The kitchen, with its substantial island and prep/champagne trough takes centre stage in a timeless hand-painted finish with premium appliances fit for a chef. The kitchen’s tall bank of cabinetry, consisting of a concealed coffee centre and large volume cooling appliances, has been cleverly positioned some distance away from the wall it covers to screen an open pantry zone and access to the bar. The glazed display cabinet integrated into the wall provides a glamorous peek into the wine room.

The bar, reminiscent of an opulent gentleman’s whisky room, is discreetly accessed through the pantry space and offers a playful glimpse of its existence from the stairwell. Rich stained oak, natural quartzite surfaces, tactile upholstery and leather wall panels react with ambient lighting to offer a charming sanctuary.

The master suite is a masterpiece. The bespoke bedhead contains small shutter doors that open outwards to reveal small period stained glass windows and leafy views. The open dressing room wing, previously a separate bedroom, is finished in walnut and hand painted in farrow and ball’s ammonite.
