About Redesign of an Oxfordshire manor house by Pippa Paton Design
The brief for this 16th-century Grade II listed manor house was to completely redesign it to fuse with its gardens to create a contemporary family space for living and entertaining.
A new eighteen-hundred square foot extension was added to house a new kitchen, dining and living space and large sliding glass doors connect the house to its seven-acre park-like gardens.
Original features discovered during the renovation were left uncovered and modern oak trusses were set into the exposed Cotswold stone walls to create a link with the past.
A glass atrium now floods the ground floor with light. The use of bleached-oak flooring, limestone and dark wood in the kitchen along with double-layered linen curtains and textured rugs, soften the expansiveness of the vaulted space.
The house has been brought into the 21st century with all the amenities of modern-day life whilst retaining much of its beautiful history.
Untreated beams and exposed Cotswold stonework emphasise the volume of an open-plan living area and offer the perfect backdrop for this statement rustic clock. Antique Indian fabric cushions and a framed antique Nepalese kimono bring accents of colour to an earthy colour palette in the contemporary living area.
