Pevsner’s Architectural Guide: The Buildings of England details the style and history of every building of architectural significance in the country. England doesn’t suffer for lack of old buildings—there are 51 volumes in the series—but this manor still stands out. According to the guide on Lincolnshire, a county known for its rural beauty, “Few houses in the country fill one with such delight.”
When the new owners bought the historic property, they were intent on turning it into a warm family home without losing the grand proportions—including in the kitchen. To this end, they kept the oversized Gothic windows, the weathered limestone floors, an original fireplace, and the space’s dramatic loftiness. Then they tapped deVOL to supply them with their Classic English Kitchen cabinets. The result is a large, airy space that manages to be both fit for family life and respectful of its architectural pedigree.
Have a look. (For more on the renovation of this medieval manor, follow @the.history.keeper on Instagram.)
