Earlier this year I wrote about the conversion project that we’ve been working on in the Surrey Hills. A complex replanning and interior redesign to transform a stables into a beautiful residential property.
Now the finishes and fittings have been installed and, as the project gets closer to completion, it’s great to see the interiors decorated and having the feel of a new home.
Looking into the kitchen, the gorgeous limestone flooring is in keeping with the style of the property. Light and practical, it’s laid in an offset bond pattern so that it looks smart with the contemporary details of the conversion:
In the reception wing, oak timber parquet flooring is laid throughout. The pattern provides visual interest, while the continuity through the spaces provides a sense of connection in the ‘broken plan’ layout:
The chimney breast is rendered in a rough plaster finish, and miniature LED lights are recessed into the flooring. These narrow-beam accent lights will illuminate the front of the chimney breast and highlight the rustic texture of the wall finish:
Limestone is used throughout the master bathroom too. For the walk-in wetroom-style shower, the stone finish continues across all of the walls and the floor, with the drain discreetly installed across the full width of the shower area:
Finally, a small detail but one I have always loved in this property. These are the original beams inside the roof of the cloakroom, from the corner of one of the old stables. The abstract effect is stunning, and no less so now that the simple lighting and sanitaryware has been installed:
