Inside The World's Only Modern Country Georgian Newbuild!!

Could you not resist coming back to see the inside of the wowsers Georgian home I showed you last time, which had been moved stone by laborious stone thirty miles away to the new owners- dream location.

Gorgeous Georgian newbuild!

Let's begin our tour in this magnificent hallway. The floors are an opilent mix of Cotswold and Portland stone. Isn't the design lovely? Fired Earth Bone White is a similar paint colour to this softest, palest grey.

Grey is a key shade in this home, which brings a real sense of the contemporary, contrasting beautifully with the rural setting. 

As well as the five bedrooms, it also boasts four reception rooms, four bathrooms and is situated in five acres of land

Modern Country Style in its element, you might say! Is it any wonder that I love it so much!

Modern Country French style dining room

The kitchen diner is significantly more rustic than the other rooms, and has an interesting mix of French chic in the dining area and then ultra sleek in he kitchen.

I love all the open fires here! They're certainly not original and are the wrong era entirely but they somehow add to the period feel of the house.

The last of the reception rooms; shall we call this one the snug?... This room combines the greys used so effectively in the rest of the house. Little Greene's Lead would look beautiful in this setting.

And then on to the gardens! This Georgian house is set in five acres of stunning countryside so the garden has the most perfect backdrop. Can you imagine lounging in those chairs with a glass of something sparkly!?

Even the garden has its own Modern Country style, with its parterres and topiary, softened wth gently romantic planting.

Yes, I'd say all my Modern Country Style boxes have been ticked!

Take care until next time,

Can You Believe This Georgian Home Was Moved From 30 Miles Away!?

Well, this is the one of the most bizarre home stories I've shared... At first glance, this gorgeous Georgian gem looks as though it's centuries old. Does it have you fooled?!

Would you believe me if I said that it had been moved, stone by stone, from 30 miles away? This is how it was originally....see how the roof and porch are much simpler, the windows are less grand and there are no columns in sight:

Yup, You read that right! The owners dismantled this 18th century house from Wiltshire and their builder painstakingly rebuilt it in Gloucestershire to create the look you see it is, in a rather special way, a new build!

And the most bizarre thing of all, after all that hassle and planning permission quandaries, is that the home was put on the market for sale a couple of years after the mammoth project finished for a whopping £3.75 million, giving the owners very little time to enjoy the fruit of their labours. 

It all started when he owners couldn't find a home to their liking in their chosen location in the Cotswolds. And what a jaw-dropping location it is! The new house is set in five acres in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The good news is that the original house was due to be taken down anyway. It was completely derelict and riddled with damp issues. So this was not architectural vandalism but, rather, a case of rescuing an old treasure.

The 'new' house has five bedrooms. four bathrooms and four stunning reception rooms, all with a firm nod to its proud Georgian history but fully embracing the 21st century.

Shall we take a look around inside? 

It's, no real surprise, completely gorgeous!...but you'll have to come back next time to see!
{What a tease, I know!}
