A sumptuous Georgian Villa

Posted by Bath Bespoke on 2 June 2015

The Bath Bespoke team were part of a large refurbishment project on Bathwick Hill. Our clients had embarked on the restoration of an historic six bedroom Georgian Villa dated c.1814, and we were invited by their interior designer to look at the fitted furniture elements of the schedule. We jumped at the chance to get involved.

Our brief was to create furniture that was in keeping with the Georgian architectural style of the house. Tom and Laura worked together on the design aspect of this project; specifying geometric square-panelled doors with elegant crown mouldings which were inspired by the existing elegant Georgian doors. Our team faithfully copied the profiles of the existing period skirting. They were all different, so the team had to manufacture special cutters for the spindle moulder, allowing us to exactly replicate the originals.

We were tasked with the design, manufacture and installation of an entire fitted office room, with shelves and storage which mimicked wall panelling. The Bath Bespoke team also made a series of elegant fitted wardrobes for the master dressing room along with a pair of matching alcove cupboards. We used oak painted knobs throughout the rest of the project, but here our client chose delicate hand blown glass knobs to echo the soft and feminine art deco theme in this area of the house.

Our clients wanted a neat and functional utility room, so we created a space that consists of integral cupboards, an under-mounted stainless steel sink with a marble top and a concealed ironing board panel. Two of our finishing team; Luke and Michael, used water based eggshell paints to give a super-smooth finish to all the woodwork, and we specified soft-closing doors and drawers throughout. (All our ironmongery comes with a lifetime guarantee.)

The refurbishment of this lovely Georgian Villa was completed in February 2015. Two of our talented joiners: Dan and Laura led the rest of the Bath Bespoke team on this rewarding project. If you have a refurbishment project in mind and are not sure where to start, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, because we’d love to help.
