Originally designed as a hunting lodge and later extended in the mid 18th century, this beautiful Georgian family home is surrounded by parkland with stunning views across the rolling countryside and farmland beyond. The homeowners wanted a classic English kitchen to reflect the Georgian heritage of the home but also one that would suit their busy lives and the needs of their small children.
The original chimney houses the AGA which acts as the central focal point in the space and divides the kitchen from the scullery run behind and the walk-in pantry. The original pulley is still visible above the overmantel and would have been used for cooking meats and lowering pans of water over the stove.
The Nickleby cabinetry works so well in this project – the simplicity of the door design combined with the cool grey colour palette gives the space a really calm and relaxed feel. The Nickleby prep table acts as the main prep area in the kitchen and fits in perfectly with the heritage of this Georgian family home. Located just opposite the 3 oven dual control white AGA with gas module, the prep table is finished with a Pippy oak worktop and painted in Farthing II by H|M Paint Atelier.
The walk in pantry has Georgian style screens with the Georgian door all handmade by our cabinetmakers in Felsted, Essex and installed along with the kitchen cabinetry. The pantry has artisan shelves for storing everyday items and deep drawers for storing dry goods. With plenty of worktop space and a sink just below the window, the pantry is the perfect spot for baking and preparing dishes.
Behind the main kitchen is the scullery run with one long run of drawers and cupboards and two large countertop cupboards for storing glassware and tableware. With the dishwasher and bin located either side of the run, this is the main washing up area with the sink under the large Georgian sash window that looks out across the beautiful countryside. The fridge freezer is also located in this area and cleverly recessed in the chimney the other side of the AGA.
