Devon Farmhouse

Richard Downer
This Georgian property is in an outstanding location with open views over Dartmoor and the sea beyond.

Our brief for this project was to transform the property which has seen many unsympathetic alterations over the years with a new internal layout, external renovation and interior design scheme to provide a timeless home for a young family. The property required extensive remodelling both internally and externally to create a home that our clients call their “forever home”.

Our refurbishment retains and restores original features such as fireplaces and panelling while incorporating the client's personal tastes and lifestyle. More specifically a dramatic dining room, a hard working boot room and a study/DJ room were requested. The interior scheme gives a nod to the Georgian architecture while integrating the technology for today's living.

Generally throughout the house a limited materials and colour palette have been applied to give our client's the timeless, refined interior scheme they desired. Granite, reclaimed slate and washed walnut floorboards make up the key materials.

Conceal and revealThis is the modern equivalent of a Scooby-Doo-style trick bookcase: A restful bedroom is concealed behind a wall of books, with a hinged section opening up to reveal what’s behind. A design like this provides valuable extra shelf space that would otherwise be lost to a door, and would also work well as a way of creating separate zones in a broken-plan space.

For Master bedroom side. I like the idea of a bar going across the entire space. the ladder is also a nice feature (although might not be high on Ryan's list)
