Blue Eyed Beauty

We are fortunate to be so close to the beautiful city of Cambridge and have been commissioned to work on some fabulous properties there.

The family of this large town house situated on a surprisingly quiet road just outside the city centre, have lived there for more than 20 years.  During this time they have made some considerable improvements, the most recent being a large kitchen extension to the back of the house.

As well as increasing the size of the room, bi fold doors were fitted across the full length of the outside wall, allowing the room to open out into the garden.

Then came the bespoke kitchen and Baker & Baker designs were chosen. The client had a clear idea of how the kitchen should look and how it should work and together, we were able to achieve the desired effect.

Large and spacious but not cavernous, this room has a lovely feel about it.  The sun floods in through the bi fold doors and the large sky lights above but even on a dull day, the white walls and light limestone tile flooring make the room bright and airy.
