Could you not resist coming back to see the inside of the wowsers Georgian home I showed you last time, which had been moved stone by laborious stone thirty miles away to the new owners- dream location.
Let’s begin our tour in this magnificent hallway. The floors are an opilent mix of Cotswold and Portland stone. Isn’t the design lovely? Fired Earth Bone White is a similar paint colour to this softest, palest grey.
Grey is a key shade in this home, which brings a real sense of the contemporary, contrasting beautifully with the rural setting.
Modern Country Style in its element, you might say! Is it any wonder that I love it so much!
The kitchen diner is significantly more rustic than the other rooms, and has an interesting mix of French chic in the dining area and then ultra sleek in he kitchen.
I love all the open fires here! They’re certainly not original and are the wrong era entirely but they somehow add to the period feel of the house.
The last of the reception rooms; shall we call this one the snug?… This room combines the greys used so effectively in the rest of the house. Little Greene’s Lead would look beautiful in this setting.
And then on to the gardens! This Georgian house is set in five acres of stunning countryside so the garden has the most perfect backdrop. Can you imagine lounging in those chairs with a glass of something sparkly!?
Even the garden has its own Modern Country style, with its parterres and topiary, softened wth gently romantic planting.
Yes, I’d say all my Modern Country Style boxes have been ticked!
Take care until next time,
