Caroline Holdaway’s interiors are subtle and supremely comfortable, and when working on period properties she takes care to respectfully restore what is original, adding harmonious additions to complement.
- Hunting Box Sherston
“This property originally formed part of a 16thC coaching inn. It is a flat-fronted stone village house with cross mullion windows on the edge of the Cotswolds. The sole purpose of this gloriously neat and perfectly proportioned house was to stand as a hunting box for my clients.”
- Artist’s Studio Belsize Park
“This property is a former Victorian purpose-built artist’s studio brimming with north and south-facing light. The façade is filled by an over-scaled two storey window the generosity of which we matched by the addition of a double-height oak framed bay window at the back. This gave us the additional space we were looking for and the glorious play of light. The roof came off so we could remove dividing walls and put in a new staircase, two bathrooms and a delightful generous landing that had the ability to be used as a workspace should that be required in the future. The galleried double-height sitting room is a rare and coveted luxury in the heart of London two minutes walk from the tube, an urban paradise in the centre of leafy London.”
This property, originally two keepers cottages in West Sussex, is a cherished second home for my clients who wanted to enlarge to create space for entertaining, provision for guests and ancillary accommodation. Two extensions were added and a glass link to capitalise on the views of the glorious Sussex Downs.
