Charlotte Skene-Catling transformed provincial stone house into a modern guest house. The house has approximately 2,030 sq ft of internal space. Although the original facade was retained, the interior is completely changed. There are five bedrooms, a large kitchen, a large reception room with an open fireplace, a study area and outside the property, a pool. The engaging design and carefully considered detailing of the property is of a quality rarely matched in the UK – black Indian marble, for instance, is used throughout the kitchen, and alternating strips of estate oak and opaque glass form the newly-added annexe. There is a big garden that overlooks the rural landscape of Somerset.
The house is designed to offer a series of surprise and to seduct her guests.
