It's clean and well modernised (and of course deVol always produce impeccable design), but if it'd been mine, I wouldn't have 'modernised' it quite so far and would've kept it more rustic. The bedrooms are a bit too 'hotel style' for my own taste. But Houzz readers - and I'm sure the owners - love it, which is great!

Agree with you here Karen. One really wouldn't know this was a very old property. Can't fault the job though. Very pleasing and pleasant but it lacks the Wow factor in my humble opinion. I like the new hearth area however with that wood burning stove and mantelpiece... It's good to see the floor plans and the 'before' photos!

Have to agree with Cassandra, all very lovely and nice colour scheme, but it lacks the wow factor.
