Texture and history play an essential role in the integrity of this former Victorian sea captain’s house on Cragg path in Aldeburgh.
Style of House
Colour of Kitchen
Of historical importance in this bespoke kitchen is a flint wall, which once formed the exterior of the captain’s house. The stonework is so beautiful that you cannot help but touch it. The owners were understandably keen to have a kitchen handcrafted to fit around the exposed flint.
Given the need to work around and complement existing architectural features, clever use was made of every inch of this quaint space. Pull-out larder doors and hidden storage solutions neatly sit within handcrafted oak cabinets.
Every tiny detail matters. Oak veneered cupboard interiors, and solid oak drawers create a richness inside and out. The rich brown and red tones of the oak and brick are accented by Black Zimbabwe granite and stark white painted walls.
“Superb kitchen from Andy and his team. I cannot rate too highly – beautiful craftsmanship and fantastic service.”Robert Lane
