The Georgian Manor House

A bespoke, handmade oak kitchen in rural Somerset

Current Project

Papilio Bespoke Kitchens have designed an oak kitchen and breakfast room for an impressive Georgian manor house within close proximity to Bristol in South West England. The kitchen space is tall and long and has restrictions due to its Grade II listing, however Papilio’s Creative Director has worked closely with the client and architect to ensure that not only are all of the listed building restrictions adhered to but also that the finished kitchen is spectacular.

The styling draws influence from the original Georgian features but also pulls in a contemporary Scandinavian feel. The work surfaces and Aga range cooker have been set at an above average level as requested by our taller client, this is one of the many benefits of a bespoke kitchen. The plinth heights are also a very specific bespoke detail requested by the client. Another unique bespoke detail requested was for the cat’s food and drink bowls to be recessed into the lower section of an open cabinet.

Whilst most of the kitchen will be finished in an oak veneer with crisp clean lines and beautiful textures, the sink run is to be finished in an opulent Calacatta Oro marble which we sourced direct from Italy. The finishing piece for the wet area is the renowned and unique Gooseneck regulator in antique brass by Waterworks.

The appliance schedule includes a 5-door Aga range cooker with an electric module including gas burners, this style of cooker allows for a great deal of versatility in cooking styles. We have also specified the Miele flagship fridge freezer, the “MasterCool” and the brand new addition to the Miele dishwasher range “Knock 2 Open” which allows for the discreet handle detail in this bespoke kitchen to continue uninterrupted through the design.
