Re-imagined Spaces in a Historic Farmhouse/Barn Conversion
A beautiful family home was redeveloped utilising previously unused spaces to create harmonious rooms that married proportion with practicality. The team worked with the clients who were keen to open out the downstairs space, by removing walls and replanning the kitchen/ dining and living space. Previously ignored areas became useful and beautiful talking points such as the gin bar, seating area with arched, shuttered windows and an interesting utility with bespoke sycamore ladders to a uniquely located wine store. Upstairs the addition of multiple ensuites and a house bathroom allows plenty of facilities for each of the 6 bedrooms.
Recommended by a friend, we first met the clients to discuss their kitchen. We soon developed a trusted client/ customer rapport and were invited to look at other rooms in their beautiful, Nidderdale home.
Their listed farmhouse was restored more than 30 years ago. They were looking to update their home by bringing in additional natural light and space to the large combined farmhouse/barn conversion.
This included filling in an unused indoor swimming pool and unifying the whole, larger space with used, calibrated stone flags across the entire area.
A timeless kitchen sitting nicely in its surroundings, with a solid pippy oak island and painted cabinetry elsewhere. We created the chimney breast feature, which sits on top of the work surface, allowing full storage beneath. features our classic oak bar stools (SD15 BB) with signature inlaid back detail and upholstered seat pad. The kitchen island is handmade from Pippy Oak with bead board detail and antiqued black granite.
Two rooms became one by removing one large wall to create a well-proportioned kitchen, dining and living space. The new opening was lined with timber panelling, skirting and architrave. This was made to match perfectly with the home’s existing interior architecture. Reclaimed, calibrated Yorkshire stone flags were laid on an underfloor heating system.
The kitchen was designed to incorporate the existing navy blue aga, with an ever-popular bespoke house hideaway and a fridge/freezer from Sub-Zero. All cabinetry was hand-finished in Farrow & Ball White Tie and Pewter handles by Armac Martin.
