#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – ONE OF THE FINEST COUNTRY HOUSES IN EAST YORKSHIRE

Posted on: April 16th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

The property we have chosen for this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is situated in the beautiful village of Beverley, East Yorkshire, one of the region’s real ‘hidden gems’. This 5 bedroom house, which is on the market with Savills, not only has a self-contained staff flat, but also a quaint three bedroom cottage in the grounds – what more could the owner of £4.9m mansion want?

Richard Grafton, our MD, is always keeping an eye on what Yorkshire properties are on the market, and when one like this comes up it’s hard to ignore. “There is no doubt that this house is spectacular inside and out but I particularly love the foyer. The grandeur of the staircase and the pillars standing both storeys high are an elaborate feature that creates an entrance which truly does this property justice.”

Richard continues: “This bedroom has been beautifully decorated in a way that is fresh but not too modern and, as you would expect in a property of this value, it is dressed to perfection. I especially like how the structured frame of the seating at the foot of the bed ties in nicely with the rest of the French styled furniture. Adorning the room with a classic chandelier is a lovely touch of feature lighting without being overpowering.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A HARROGATE HOME WITH COASTAL VIBES

Posted on: April 9th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a beautiful property in our hometown of Harrogate. Nominated by Verity Frearson Estate Agents, this 3 bedroom home is a charming property providing spacious contemporary living whilst overlooking open countryside. With a passion for coastal themes, our interior designer Janet was the perfect person to comment on this lovely home.

 IMG_8643_1_large

Starting with the living area, Janet loved the choice of décor “The owners of this property have really gone to town on the neutral coastal theme. Sticking with a white, cream and blue colour palette, this space has a lovely relaxed vibe you might expect of a holiday home by the sea.”

IMG_8643_8_large

The bedroom also stood out to Janet with its relaxed, serene vibe: “I really like this room as a whole. With an air of sophistication and glamour, this bedroom has been decorated beautifully, with lovely French style furniture and is the perfect style to match the rest of the house.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BEAUTIFUL 1920’S PROPERTY WITH FRESH CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR

Posted on: April 2nd, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

On the market with Manning Stainton estate agents, this Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is an exceptional 1920’s four bedroom ‘Arts and Crafts’ style home, based in Bramhope on the outskirts of Leeds.

The gorgeous exterior is matched by the stunning interior design which makes this property as a whole, even more desirable as a contemporary family home.

We asked our interior design team to comment on this property, and here’s what they picked out:

The large family dining kitchen caught the eye of Sarah, senior designer at Grafton Freestone “The vaulted ceiling with lantern roof is a fantastic feature in this room. Not only allowing light to pour into the space, but also opening up what is already a huge room. It can be tricky to find furniture to suit a room with such a high ceiling but the owners have made the most of the height with light coloured bespoke kitchen units.”

Sarah continues through to the bathroom “Not lacking in space, this large sophisticated bathroom has a lovely freestanding roll top bath as the focal point and a huge walk in shower behind. The clean lines created by the glass shower screen and floor to ceiling tiles are very much the style we go for in many of the bathrooms that we install. ”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A STRIKING YORK TOWNHOUSE FULL OF ORIGINAL CHARM

Posted on: March 26th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week Richard Grafton Interior’s #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a six bedroom Victorian beauty in the historic hub of York.

On the market with Carter Jonas, this Grade ll listed townhouse is situated just outside the city walls with easy access to both local schools and amenities.

53812_YOR110319_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

The original Victorian features make this property a real showstopper with its beautiful high ceilings and tall bay windows, complemented perfectly with a luxurious and contemporary interior.

Our interior designer Rosie took a peek through the keyhole of this property and here’s what she thought “I really like how the owners have stuck to the soft grey and white colour palette throughout the main rooms in this house. In the lounge the dark grey and purple statement sofas really stand out against the pale grey walls and carpet and the striped blinds are an elegant choice for dressing the impressive windows.”

53812_YOR110319_IMG_01_0000_max_656x437

Rosie also pointed out the bathroom “The white granite of the sink unit against the dark tiled walls gives the whole room a crisp and minimalistic appearance. The blind above the roll top bath has a complementary grey floral pattern which softens the overall look.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A BEAUTIFUL HOME ALL ROUND

Posted on: March 19th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a truly unique property based in Knaresborough.

Aptly named ‘The Round House’, this property dates back to the 1800’s and was fully restored in 2009 with all new plumbing, electrics, flooring and roof. Not afraid of using colour, the owners have redecorated throughout creating a welcoming, colourful home.

IMG_8598_14_large

We asked our senior designer, Kim, to pick out a few of her favourite features and she loved the relaxed style the owners had gone for in the sitting room “The windows to either side of this room let in lots of natural light and the contrasting sofas look cosy and inviting.

IMG_8598_9_large

The owners haven’t been afraid to use contrasting fabrics on the curtains and blinds which looks great and the injection of yellow to the overall colour palette gives a fresh feel.”

IMG_8598_8_large

 

Continuing upstairs, Kim picked out one of the bedrooms and adjoining ensuite: “I really like the colour scheme in this room, the combination of pink and pale grey creates such a soft, feminine feel and the French style furniture looks lovely against the wallpaper. The French theme continues seamlessly into the ensuite with the large decorative mirror, pastel colours and blind that matches the wallpaper.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – TAKING CENTRE STAGE ON THE VILLAGE GREEN

Posted on: March 12th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

Nominated by Blenkin and Co estate agents, this beautiful #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a listed building that takes centre stage on the green in the quaint Yorkshire village of Green Hammerton.

33630_5418183_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

We asked our design team to pick out a few of their favourite features and here’s what they came up with:

Janet our interior designer, loved the cosiness of the sitting room: “The tartan cushions and deep red palette in this room look great, and complement the rich tones of the wooden beams. The open fireplace, with exposed brickwork is a fantastic original feature and I’m so pleased the owners have kept it.”

33630_5418183_IMG_04_0000_max_656x437

33630_5418183_IMG_03_0000_max_656x437

Moving through the house the extension to the rear of the property allows for a more modernised kitchen/conservatory area allowing the light to flood through the house.

Interior architect Sarah explains: “The modern open plan kitchen is the perfect family space and the use of high quality, traditional materials really complement the age and style of the property.

33630_5418183_IMG_06_0000_max_656x437

The atrium is also a lovely addition to the property and adds an interesting and contemporary twist. Keeping furniture to a minimum, the owners are obviously trying to keep the beautiful garden as the focus of this room and it’s the perfect spot to sit back and take it all in.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – LINTON LANE’S ICONIC FAIRYTALE HOME

Posted on: March 5th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is one of Linton in Wetherby’s most iconic properties; a 5 bedroom beauty on the market with Beadnall Copley!

With a heated swimming pool, impressive central turret and the capacity for a working office, this property literally has everything.

65755_WTH150044_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

We asked our interior design team to comment on this magical house, and here’s what they picked out:

The orangery caught the eye of Andrew, interior architect and MD at Grafton Freestone “The orangery at the end of this house no doubt fills this section of the property with lots of lovely natural light. The owners clearly use this as a social space with the addition of a bar and the fact that it leads onto the garden makes it the perfect space for entertaining in the summer months.”

65755_WTH150044_IMG_03_0000_max_656x437

Andrew also admires the bespoke bathrooms in this property: “The detailed custom-built cabinetry in this room with granite tops and splash backs is nicely designed and a great use of the space. The double sinks with large mirrors are a popular choice in the bathrooms that we design and the use of high quality materials and neutral colour palette give this room a timeless edge.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – A CHARACTERFUL HOME THAT’S PART OF THE YORKSHIRE LANDSCAPE

Posted on: February 26th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

Nominated by Myrings Estate Agents, this week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is an idyllic five bedroom house that nestles perfectly into Knaresborough Crag, with wonderful views across River Nidd valley.

This home is fully equipped for the modern family with its own cinema/games room, electrically controlled venetian blinds and the comfort of underfloor heating.

If this home isn’t quirky enough for you, there is also a wild card feature; for purchase under a separate negotiation there is also the option to buy an acre of woodland with two caves!

We asked our designers to comment on a few of the features in this property, and here’s what they picked out.

Sarah our interior architect, focused on the use of space in the kitchen/dining area: “As the property backs onto a crag, the dining area is an unusual shape, but the owners have worked with it to create nice living zones, for cooking, dining and relaxing and the neutral flooring, white walls and clever lighting all add to the feeling of space and light.”

27902 (4)

The games room caught the eye of Kim, our senior interior designer:

“This room is like the ultimate ‘man cave’ or teenagers hang out, with the large leather sofas, pool table and giant screen! Cinema rooms are a popular choice for homes with spare reception rooms and add a really nice, playful element to a home – a place the whole family can get together and relax.”

The outdoor terrace is a great addition to the house, although it does have a private garden the balcony brings the outside in and provides a lovely spot to enjoy a drink during the summer.

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – BECOME LORD OF THE MANOR AT THE GORGEOUS GATEFORTH HALL

Posted on: February 18th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is situated near Selby is and is in a league of its own! Not only would you be getting an amazing stately home, you would also acquire your very own title as Lord Of the Manor Of Gateforth And Lund. When the house was originally sold 200 years ago it included the manorial title, which is still part of the package in 2015!

Exterior

We asked our interior design team to take a look at this grand property, and this is what they had to say:

The kitchen caught the eye of Andrew our interior architect: “It can be quite difficult to renovate a property with such a wealth of history like Gateforth Hall, but the owners have done a superb job of keeping the rooms tasteful and furnished appropriately.

The kitchen is very simple but I love how they have made the most of the height with the suspended lighting and period colour scheme. Simple is most certainly best in this case as the architectural features are allowed to take centre stage”.

Kitchen

Janet, one of our interior designers, focused on the entrance hall “I love the symmetry in this room created by the large windows either side of the door. The lovely dark fire place, antique pieces and the chandelier give a real feeling of old school grandeur.”

Main entrance

Andrew, also an expert in staircases, couldn’t resist commenting on the stairway: “Very reminiscent of Downton Abbey, this staircase is a great statement piece to restore in a property like Gateforth Hall. The large pillars and intricate cornicing are both elegant and sophisticated and overall this entrance has serious wow factor!”

Staircase
