This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a charming semi-detached barn conversion by Fewston Reservoir.
Having the luxury of open space but the security of neighbours, this property has the balance just right. This spacious family home has been tastefully renovated with superb views across the valley and a stunning interior to match!
We asked our designers what they thought of this conversion and here’s what they came up with:
The kitchen, living and dining room caught the eye of Sarah, our senior designer and spatial expert “This huge kitchen come dining area is the perfect space for entertaining. Having not only a dining table in the same room, but also a smaller bar table for breakfast brunches or perhaps a space to perch with an evening drink. I love seeing kitchens integrated into other rooms as it means the chef can be a part of the party when having guests over!”
Andrew, director at Grafton Freestone, loved the mixture of materials used in the property “One of the major benefits of converting an old barn is being able to expose all of the traditional materials such as the wooden beams and beautiful stone. These materials add so much character to the building and really stand out here against the crisp white walls.”
Kim, our interior designer picked one of the simple and stylish bedrooms as one of her favourites: “The irregular shape of this room makes it feel cosy and I think the decision to stick to the white colour palette works well, letting the curves of the room and the lovely beams speak for themselves. The simple accessories add a splash of colour to this blank canvas and can easily be changed over time to give the room a different feel.”
If you are currently making changes to your home, perhaps taking down walls to make an open plan kitchen dining area, speak to one of our trusty designers for ideas on how to decorate your new found space! It can be difficult to visualise the room as a whole after living in it as two separate areas so having a fresh perspective can really help.
