A beautiful Classic Shaker kitchen in a Grade II listed property in Bishop’s Stortford. There is such a wonderful mix of materials and colours which just work perfectly to create a kitchen with absolute charm.
Want to walk around? We have our brand new virtual tour below – check it out…
The central island is so functional, with seating for 4 people on the curved breakfast bar with turned solid oak support beneath the Bianca Eclipsia Quartzite. The island incorporates a selection of drawers and doors on both long sides, a Sub-Zero wine cooler, solid oak chopping boards and a solid oak serving tray complete with engraving.
The island has been hand painted in Farrow & Ball Brinjal.
In the main kitchen area we find this wall which is where all the cooking happens, with the Wolf Induction Hob and Wolf M-Series Professional appliances. Westin bespoke extraction was fitted above the hob. Beautifully integrated beneath the original wood beams of the property.
This furniture has been hand painted in Farrow & Ball Dove Tale, as has the rest of the kitchen, including the galley section.
Here are some close up’s of the impressive looking Wolf appliances – trust us, they perform as well – if not better than – their looks! The same goes for the Westin extractor, quiet and efficient.
We built a custom dresser/bar featuring curved glass which was a first for us. This bar is located opposite the Sub-Zero Wine Cooler.
Talking of the Sub-Zero Wine Cooler, it is dual zone allowing you to keep both White and Red wines at their optimal temperatures. A pull out full height drawer takes care of storing mixers ready to serve the drinks on the solid oak engraved serving tray.
We then move through into the galley part of the kitchen, which features the main sink, fridge/freezer, pantry cupboards and utility appliances.
The Sub-Zero Fridge Freezer is the 1057mm width model with professional handle and french door fridge with freezer drawer.
The sink and tap here are impressive and beautiful, by the trusted Perrin & Rowe brand name. The deck mounted tap is the Ionian polished chrome, with a boiling water tap, rinse and hand wash station. The sink is their Shaker 900 ceramic double bowl sink. You might also spot the Insinkerator® food waste disposal unit.
Some further details in this area include the dog bed, drawer-within-a-drawer storage with peg board hidden behind what appear to be a set of doors, this is the same below the sink where we have a single drawer for all the washing up utensils and then the stunning Armac Martin Merrick door knobs.
