Splendour, Elegance and Precision – are the cornerstone dependencies in any resume of a Georgian property.
With respect for the fellow artisans of the past, the aim was not to eradicate the historic Georgian design, but merely to enhance around the classic architecture and cornices, whilst honouring its nostalgic integrity, with a splash of fresh modernity.
In 2009, the chance to relive its glory days was revealed, when 4M was given the honour of regenerating the tired home - the perfect opportunity for 4M to showcase not only its skill for residential couture, but also its passion for architectural history and the respect that must be paid to it.
The mammoth 5,000 sq. ft. property took 12 months to transmogrify, from its earliest sketches, to the finished product.
All of the interior was hollowed out, to be totally revitalised by our 4M team. The only thing left untouched, was the commanding staircase, left to stand in all of its Georgian-styled glory.
To expand on living space area, an additional basement level was excavated out by our construction team, creating a room for a theatre and a gym, whilst the lower ground floor was utilised for its availability to extend into the garden, and also creating a light well to bring in natural light.
The interior design and materials used were a mixture of both 4M bespoke and manufactured. In the kitchen, whist the floor marvelled with immaculate French white limestone – the doors and joinery elements were all designed and created especially to fit the house. Similarly, on the master bedroom level, the bath was created using book matched Calcutta stone which was selected on the quarry.
Merging with technical innovation, a state of the art audio visual system was installed - capable of linking all appliances together - including the blinds, lights, temperature gauges and all appliances.
Exhibited in every room, with ergonomic ease is 4M’s talent for finding the perfect symphony of materials and space. Each room, whilst individualised is purposeful, seamless energy flowing effortlessly between its parallelism ensured perfection.
The end result? A proud archaic gem, laced with the contemporary, but that honours and encompasses all the values of the Georgian spirit. Although hidden to the uninformed–beneath the aging brick facade - lies a regenerated masterpiece.
