Northumberland Manor House Nestled within the rolling hills of Northumbria, this 18th Century Manor house has reclaimed its Georgian heritage while maintaining both formal and family elements. “A place for everything and everything in its place”. A proverb to remind us of the orderly form of storing things. And with a well-considered Butlers pantry, second pantry, and scullery – all designed to serve their purpose perfectly – this couldn’t be more true.
Inherited with the original kitchen was a distinctive La Cornue range which is now gracefully accompanied by Spitalfields cupboards, delicately painted in ‘Silver Polish’ and framed by quintessential Queen Anne-style glazed wall cupboards adorned with charming Antique brass knobs. Within this run, a Carrara marble sink sits elegantly beneath a Bianca Eclipsia worktop with Hanbury doors below. Tailor-made glazed screens, painted in ‘Mash’, then section and divide the space into rooms while the addition of shelves at a convenient height provides the perfect spot for stools. An area for a drink or for sharing stories from the day.
A generous pantry where deep cupboards and open shelving on Queen Anne brackets store beautifully organised jars of dry foods, ready for baking or preparing wholesome family meals. The ladder, painted in ‘Woollen Flump’ gloss, is ready and poised to help reach high-up spaces. The glazed panels allow light to flow between the rooms, leading you through to the Butler’s pantry. Here, a deep sink and dishwasher under a Carrara marble worktop provide room for clearing away plates while keeping the generous fridge and freezer hidden neatly from view. A second pantry provides plenty of storage for tableware and serving platters with another thoughtful, smaller, ladder to help reach the higher shelves above. The grand Dutch Larder, with its exterior painted in ‘Kipper’, is positioned close to the dining table. Its specially designed interior is the designated zone for preparing favourite drinks and adds an element of surprise painted in the glorious Plain English ‘Boiled Egg’ colour.
