If it’s “wow” factor you’re after then look no further than this week’s #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek! Nimrod is a 6,000 square foot, environmentally sustainable five bedroom ‘smarthome’ that sits in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire village of Ilkley. The property incorporates the latest in cutting edge technology along with high-end architectural and interior features and breath-taking views of the Wharfe Valley.
Named after the classical manuscript by Elgar, this property is one of the most unique we have ever featured on #YPOW. Here’s what our design team had to say about its stunning interior:
Andrew Freestone, our interior architect, who has a background in staircase design and installation loves the way that the stainless steel and glass spiral staircase cascades into the entrance hallway: “The staircase provides a stunning statement feature in this impressive circular entrance. As with many of the features in this property the owners have blended contemporary architecture with traditional interior design perfectly to create an elegant and stylish overall impression.”
Our spatial planning expert, Sarah McIntosh, admires the bespoke room partitions, an unusual feature which appears in a number of the rooms: “Most properties have the en-suite bathroom hidden behind a wall in its own very separate space. These decorative room dividers along with the rich orange colour create the feel of a high end hotel room in a tropical location. The partitions allow the owners to create separate zones without boxing off the area which can sometimes make it feel small and dark. ”
“This feeling of space continues into the living room where the large picture windows allow the light to flow through the room, creating a spacious and inviting living area. The suspended wood burning stove acts as a focal point for the room and the curved edges of the grey velvet sofas and other furniture create a fluid and relaxed feel for this living area in the heart of the home.”
If you are thinking about installing a statement staircase in your home, our interior architect Andrew is the man to talk to! In his previous role he was head of manufacturing for influential bespoke staircase provider Bisca and knows everything there is to know about the design and installation of staircases, balustrades, canopies and architectural features. You can read more about Andrew’s expertise here in our spotlight blog.
