Coombe House, Gloucestershire

Set in the picturesque Cotswolds this charming character property, presented a challenge that many homeowners face – what to do with the loft space! In many cases Building Control precludes attics from being used as bedrooms so the logical step is to utilise this area as the Family Bathroom. The combination of low ceilings, sloping walls, nooks and crannies commonly found in listed buildings, add to the design challenge.

Coombe House, built during Queen Anne’s reign in 1710, is a stunning example of how to transform this area into valuable living space. The owners succeeded in creating a beautiful functional family bathroom, featuring our Brass Bateau with Antique Brass Exterior and Parisienne Washstand. The room has been finished in honied tones and decorative wallpaper, creating a space that is bright and air. And provides a safe retreat for the family spaniel Toby.
