This week’s #Yorkshirepropertyoftheweek is a fantastic Edwardian country house perfect for the larger family, comprising nine bedrooms and even has its own ‘chauffeurs flat’ above the triple garage block! Surrounded by 6.5 acres of terraced lawned gardens, vegetable patches and two separate paddocks, this property would be ideal for someone with green fingers. We asked our designers to comment on their favourite interior features in this stately home and here’s what they had to say…
Andrew our interior architect loves how the kitchen has been updated to complement the rest of the house. “The contemporary kitchen is a fantastic asset to the home, the extra space and large island is perfect for entertaining. The simple colour scheme makes the room feel spacious and light and the contrasting dark handles add a simple pop of colour lifting the otherwise neutral colour scheme. The double glass doors also perfectly frame the fantastic views that this property has to offer.”
The beautiful solid wood furniture in the office also grabbed Andrew’s attention: “You can really see the attention to detail in the bespoke office cabinetry which fits in perfectly with the exposed beams. The grand matching desk provides the perfect working from home environment or sofas could be added to make it a snug hideaway library room.”
Our lighting expert Karen likes the use of the chandelier in this room adding a quirky touch that softens the overall look. “This room appears quite masculine with the heavy drapes, wood panelling and leather chair, however the owners have chosen a quite delicate chandelier to light the room adding to its splendour with a touch of old school grandeur.”
Andrew loves the idea of living in the Edwardian home whilst renovating the boiler house: “If the nine bedrooms, games room, inner hall and chauffeurs flat aren’t enough for you, this property also has a separate boiler house that provides an exciting renovation project. We would love to add in a cinema room or other recreational area that a family could enjoy, away from the main house.”
