Bespoke kitchens for a beautiful and grand refurbishment
The majority of John Strand clients call looking for expert help, they need a kitchen but don’t have space for one! On the opposite end of that scale is Barrington Hall, lack of space was definitely not a concern for this project. A magnificent Grade II listed Georgian country manor house set in 45-acres of parkland. Its long list of desirable features include: an oak lined driveway, stately bedrooms, portico hall, marble fireplaces, pool, and gym; the list goes on and on, oozing high end luxury.
John Strand were chosen by Silvertown Properties to supply and install new kitchens and make updates to existing kitchens. Being able to provide a hands-on design service with a true bespoke service to ensure the exacting standards for this opulent refurbishment requirements could be met.
The first kitchen, a beautiful and unique cast iron black kitchen made specifically for Barrington required updating with new worktops. The antique kitchen was sympathetically updated with solid granite worktops and brass upstand were fitted to compliment the original design.
Two new kitchens were supplied to the house, the first for the coach house needed to strike a balance between fitting in with the original features of the late 19th century architecture whilst providing a simple yet sophisticated kitchen design for modern living.
The second L-shaped kitchen again uses a simple muted colour palate and classic shaker style doors. Cabinetry uses 18mm painted oak doors, all manufactured exclusively for John Strand kitchens in the UK
The final element was to supply stone work tops for the fireplace and sink/drinks preparation area of the modern light filled games room.
