Yes, it’s a palace. This is part of the palace, named after King Ina of Wessex, who ruled from 688 until 726. His lands stretched from Kent to Devon, but the house was not built until his 14th century, and it is not even certain whether it was owned by a king. There used to be a palace on this site, but chronicles mention a temporary palace at South Petherton, where the land is located.
It was built by Sir Giles Daubeny and a brass statue of him is in the local church. The main part of the building and the walled-acre lot is for sale, but the gable part is the property of the neighbor and the house, the sellers say, although it is semi-detached, it offers a great deal of privacy. Because of this, he didn’t even bother to put up curtains.
It’s in the middle of a village hidden in the walls and grounds.
is on the market at GTHMore Priced at £850,000, it has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 receptions all set in 1 acre of private gardens. Oh, and it’s Grade II listed, so it’s definitely worth knowing before planning a kitchen extension or anything like that.
That being said, one problem with the listed buildings is the lack of bathrooms. Also, it can be difficult to get additional permits if you want to put your bathroom on a bit of stucco, which is why this building was listed in the first list. There is a risk of leakage. But don’t worry about that score as it’s already fully equipped with toilets.
Well, as you can see, the rooms are large with high ceilings. This is a cosmetic task, as it doesn’t make much sense to discuss how to change the layout for the aforementioned reasons. And actually they are the best kind. No dust, no builders, no boxes with stuff you can’t unpack. Just sit down with your color chart and check the color swatches.
And that’s exactly what the owners did. They started with a neutral palette, but then felt that pale whites and grays didn’t match the drama of the interior. Of course, always he has two approaches and as the saying goes, you have to.
One way of thinking is that you don’t want the lilies to be gilded, so keep the color palette conservative and neutral so that the architecture speaks for itself. From there they started. “I was inspired by the colors used in the farmhouses at the Hauser & Wirth Museum, so I added them bit by bit, as the palace underwent renovations and remodeling in the early Victorian era.” , used some Victorian colors and shades.”
I’ve seen Dan, one of the owners, discover the joy of color and transform the walls, and it’s been fascinating to watch him gradually add color to the palace. bottom. He used mostly Farrow & Ball paints, so the colors are light in some places, but still slightly muted, and blend perfectly with the room’s structure. And of course, if you want to buy and change it, you can do so at an affordable price.
When it comes to architecture, people often ask about sloping ceilings. Where do the walls end? Or do you start? How do you choose which bits to paint with which color? The reason for this is that loft spaces feel a bit complicated and are often left neutral.
But it’s actually easy. Paint the part you want to draw. Take for example a desk area in a natural alcove above. The entire area can be zoned with a single color for walls, sloping sides, and back walls. Alternatively, you can leave it white and paint the alcove where the bed sits. Or both. My only advice is to pick a zone and do everything from floor to ceiling. When you have so many angles and you’re busy, paint all the vertical surfaces one color and try a different color for the ones that might count as slopes and ceilings, so you don’t have to sleep or work. It also creates a less busy space. .
So you can choose a pale color to do the whole thing, or you can also use a pale green to reflect the feeling of being in a vast garden outside and in the tops of the trees, as we did here with white . Blue can also connect with the sky. If you think it would look great to dramatically decorate an entire room (walls and ceiling) with paper, opt for a non-directional pattern. Or stick to the idea of zoning in tonal or contrasting shades. In short, this is a room to enjoy.
Above the yellow, honey-colored brick exteriors are recalled, with dark ceilings complementing the floors. But what I like here is the detail around the door. A pink and blue architrave that goes well with the rug under the table. This is a great idea if you just want to go over a few details and don’t want to go through everything. So I could have left the walls neutral and given the ceiling a pale blue color, for example. The fun of painting is that the options are endless.
They also have fun in the bathroom. Sure, it helps if you have big windows and great windows, but bright orange baths look great against green walls, and pink and charcoal are a classic combination. Here the rug reflects the lattice window.
Finally to the kitchen. According to the owner, the kitchen is huggable with plenty of work space, a range cooker and a huge refrigerator.
So the question is, who dreams of living in a palace?
