A country house in a stunning riverside setting overlooking undulating countryside. This characterful, historic property was significantly reconfigured to give expansive living areas, with a spacious principal suite and bedrooms over three floors. The feel was light and airy with comfort and the family’s country lifestyle in mind.
The family wanted to make full use of all the spaces in the house so each was designed with daily use in mind and to accommodate children and muddy dogs in a relaxed setting.
The light and view to the river were first and foremost with all areas reflecting the natural setting with light timber finishes creating an informal feel and welcoming spaces.
The main living room has a relaxed feel with natural textures and warm, enveloping tones in the furniture and furnishings. Fun elements such as the pair of sheepskin chairs kept the interior light and comfortable.
The Cloakroom was designed with a combination of generous storage for coats and boots leading to a refined space with fluted walnut vanity and contemporary pendants.
The principal suite was reconfigured to create inviting dressing and bathroom spaces. A bespoke headboard with upholstery within a walnut frame was designed to give comfort and paired down elegance within this expansive room.
The principal bathroom has a large walk in shower with a bespoke central glass screen, keeping the feeling of space and light intact. The vanity finish is a bespoke black walnut and this was designed with plenty of storage.
The dressing room was designed and made as a comforting refuge with warm tones and textures in the wallpaper panelling and an l-shape window seat with a gathered cafe blind and wall light for darker mornings.
Guest rooms were kept fun and lighthearted with a mix of pattern and textures. The children’s rooms had bespoke joinery throughout to make the most of vaulted ceilings on the attic floor.
These were kept light and airy with beautiful hand made encaustic tiles to the floors and contemporary, fun herringbones with soft blues and warm stone tones to these family friendly spaces.
