#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.

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.”

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.

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.”

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_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.”

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!”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – PICTURESQUE GEORGIAN FARMHOUSE BURSTING WITH CLASS AND CHARM

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

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a charming Georgian farmhouse in Helperby, just North of York. With a prime location offering the best of both city and rural life, this six bedroom home is a peaceful retreat for a large family.

The interior design of the property is classic and traditional with a neutral palette and statement pieces of furniture.

outside

We asked our designers to have a look at this property, and here’s what they came up with.

Kim, one of our Interior designers, picked out one of the bedrooms “Keeping the colour palette neutral shows off the French style furniture which adds a sense of glamour and luxury and is a lovely focus of the room.”

bedroom

We love to talk about kitchens here at Richard Grafton and our interior architecture team picked out this gorgeous hub of the home as a room to comment on.

“The kitchen in this #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is certainly a room I can picture being the focal point whenever the owners are entertaining. The abundance of work surfaces in this room is great, the space has been planned to make the most of the light and make travelling round and working in the kitchen as logical and easy as possible.”

We couldn’t possibly miss out on mentioning the gorgeous wine cellar in this #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek! This room has plenty of character and is ideal for any wine connoisseurs.

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – STUNNING BARN CONVERSION WITH THE ORIGINAL FEATURES TO PROVE IT

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

This week we have another fantastic property from Hopkinsons Estate Agents, situated in Beckwithshaw, a beautiful village on the outskirts of Harrogate. This Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is an impressive barn conversion, packed with charm and originality.

79577_HHP05048_IMG_00_0000_max_656x437

Janet loves the unique features this property has to offer “The exposed beams and heavy farmhouse doors against the neutral décor work really well throughout this property. I love the mix of old and new in the sitting room. Although it’s open plan, the roaring stove in the large fireplace makes the space feel like a cosy haven. Accompanied by the sumptuous velvet sofas, the room has a serene and relaxed vibe.”

Sarah, our senior designer at Grafton Freestone, is a big fan of the classic and traditional bathroom “I love the individuality in this room. The roll top bath is a lovely statement and slightly raised up like this really shows it off as a fab feature.”

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – CHARMING COUNTRY PROPERTY WITH IMMACULATE INTERIORS

Posted on: January 29th, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

Many thanks to Hopkinson Estate Agents for nominating Stang Grange as this week’s #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek! This beautiful period property is situated in Farnham, with easy access to Harrogate and Knaresborough and this home really does have it all. Behind the electric gates, this immaculate house sits in extensive gardens and it would be pretty hard to find a property with views to beat this one!

house

We asked our designers to take a look at the property and give us their thoughts on the features that caught their eye.

Andrew, director at Grafton Freestone, admired the farmhouse kitchen “Focusing on the architectural features of the property, the wooden beams works really well in this room. No farmhouse kitchen would be complete without an AGA, a subtle addition in this cream colour, blending in perfectly with the neutral cabinets and flooring.”

kitchencollage

Sarah, our senior designer at Grafton Freestone, picked out the bathroom as one of her favourite spaces in the house. “Continuing the neutral colour scheme, the bathroom has been decorated in a very simple way with a wooden floor and half panelling to add to the country ambience. As the second bathroom is long and narrow, the twin sinks help to elongate the room and maximise the space available.  I like how the owners haven’t tried to make the home ultra-modern, the ongoing theme of exposed beams and natural materials are features that make this house a home.”

While we focus on the interiors of the house, it’s hard to ignore the beautifully manicured gardens this house is surrounded by. When decorating your home, it’s important to make the most of views and our designers would definitely be drawing attention towards the windows in this #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek!

#YORKSHIREPROPERTYOFTHEWEEK – EXCLUSIVE NEW BUILD IN SOUGHT AFTER SPA TOWN OF HARROGATE

Posted on: January 22nd, 2015 by rginteriors No Comments

This week’s Richard Grafton Interiors’ #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a fabulous new build in a sought after area of Harrogate.

Perfect for a large family, this six bedroom home, on the market with Beadnall & Copley has all the space you might need along with the gadgets to ensure a luxurious and hassle free life!

With underfloor heating, multi room audio and a top notch security system to make sure your home a safer place, this brand new property has all the gizmos for the tech savvy homeowner.

65755_WTH140301_IMG_00_1

After showing our designers the property, we asked them to comment on a handful of features and here’s what they picked out.

Sarah, our senior designer and kitchen specialist chose to comment on the vast contemporary kitchen “We’re seeing more and more kitchens that combine different colours, textures and finishes on the units. The wooden unit on the wall links nicely with the solid wood internal doors and is a lovely contrast against the white marble granite and pale grey doors. The grey tiled floor is perfect, tying the whole colour scheme together and the pendant globe lights are a fab feature.”

65755_WTH140301_IMG_03_1

 Andrew our interior architect and staircase expert loved the fact that the staircase is such a feature in this house “Not many people pay that much attention to the staircase, it’s my job at Grafton Freestone to show just how much ‘wow factor’ it can add creating a real focal point in the home. A lot of people make the easy choice of carpeting the steps, but I love the mix of materials used here.”

65755_WTH140301_IMG_05_1

Karen, our interior designer was a big fan of the dressing room upstairs, “This is a fab use of space in quite a narrow area and having a dressing room, away from your main bedroom is a lovely luxury. The mirrored area is great for keeping all of your products and accessories out of view and the exposed shelving means you can easily get to everything, a shoe lovers dream!”
