History in the making – this Humphrey Munson Georgian hunting lodge gives traditional style a twist

This striking property was originally designed as a hunting lodge, before being extended in the mid 18th century and recently renovated by Humphrey Munson. The family home, with rich Georgian roots, is surrounded by parkland and boasts countryside and farmland views.

The homeowners desired a classic English kitchen, which would pay homage to the heritage of the property, but would blend contemporary elements within it to suit a busy family life. In the main kitchen area, the property’s original chimney nook houses a large white 3-oven dual control electric Aga – this acts as a central focal point for the room and helps dissect the space – dividing the main kitchen from the scullery run and walk-in pantry.

Humphrey Munson ‘Nickleby’ cabinetry is used throughout this project. The minimalist door designs work well with the cool contemporary grey palette – which gives the kitchen its modern edge.

The walk-in pantry is separated from the kitchen by the company’s bespoke Georgian style doors with part glazed screens. These are finished in a deeper Top Hat blue-black, while the interior also employs Nickleby cabinetry. The same style of cabinetry is also followed through to the scullery run – ensuring the entire kitchen area has a cohesive aesthetic flow.
