The owners of this Georgian vicarage in Lincolnshire wished to create additional space for their growing family. The new room, an orangery, was designed to extend from their kitchen allowing everyone to be together whether cooking, playing or relaxing.
Our design is a traditional orangery with an inset glazed roof, 12 pane Georgian glazing and traditional pilasters. The orangery size is very generous measuring 7.2 metres by 4 metres and is painted in ‘Mud Pie’ from our Period Paint Collection – both external and internal.
As the vicarage in Lincolnshire is a listed property, careful consideration was applied to the design of the orangery and with Vale’s expertise in all periods of architecture, the new addition blends harmoniously with the main house.
In order to link with the garden we designed a set of double doors which opened from the orangery on to the terrace. With the open plan aspect of the two rooms and wonderful views out to the garden this new orangery became the most popular space in this Lincolnshire home.
The owners created a lovely relaxed and cosy area for sitting and this was made more comfortable with the installation of electronically operated conservatory roof blinds. To fit with the interior décor these pinoleum blinds were produced in the same colour as the walls – Mud Pie.
Under floor heating added lovely warmth to the orangery and we really appreciated this on the cold, snowy day that we did the photoshoot on. The new room being a light filled sanctuary when coming in from the outside.
Our clients are extremely happy with their new space, as it has made everyday life a lot easier and added light even on the gloomiest of days.
