Stalking Ilse Crawford

Posted on Fri, 29 Apr 2016 by midcenturyjo

Last year Ilse Crawford sold her London apartment and we all remembered how much we loved it. (You can still see the listing here.) Now Dinder House, another creation that had us swooning, is for sale through Knight Frank. Nine bedrooms, 7 reception rooms, 5 bathrooms and THAT kitchen diner in a Regency-era property set in over 21 acres in Wells, Somerset, England. Oh my I have loved this house so hard for so long. The real estate listing photographs, below, don’t do the interiors justice but they do give us a stalker’s peek into other areas of the house and the amazing grounds. This is also the perfect time to share my favourite part of the kitchen. Not the marble and lacquer main kitchen but the scullery next door. Both by Artichoke it’s the behind the scenes pantry that I’ve had in my kitchen inspiration files for many a year. The link to the house listing is here. Price is on application but it does not take a stretch of the imagination to realise almost all of us can’t afford it but if you can, and you buy it, can we all come round to visit?

… and that scullery…

I think I love the scullery more than the kitchen. Every room is devine.

Moyra says:

Gorgeous! And that curved top bookcase in the study is beautiful. It is all beautiful, the minimal decor allows the house to be seen in all its own glory. Thank you for the morning treat!

I like that flowered wallpaper. I wouldn't want to live with it, but if it were in a little café, I think I'd go just to be in the room with it.

Vivienne says:

It's stunning. I remember seeing a photo of that dining room a few years ago and it looks as fresh now as it did then. It just shows how good design is timeless.
