A Classic Country Kitchen, With All The Benefits Of Modern Living
Located on the most wonderfully serene country lane in the heart of East Sussex, Mr & Mrs Carter's home really is one of a kind. A period property originally built in the 14th century, it holds so much incredible history, and has housed many families over the hundreds of years. Burlanes were commissioned to design, create and install the kitchen and utility room, and a number of other rooms in the home, including the family bathroom, the master en-suite and dressing room, and bespoke shoe storage for the entrance hall.
We cannot recommend the Burlanes team enough; they just knew what we needed and got it so right.Amelia Tate - Corringham, Essex
