GODALMING, SURREY – VILLA
Immersed in the English countryside, just a few miles from central London, is located this property unit, the result of the split up of an early twentieth century manor house. The distribution is articulated through an important living area with a large living room, dining room and kitchen, continuing with the sleeping area which is structured in three different bedrooms with private bathrooms.
In the living area, during the renovation work under the carpeting, an original wooden planking has been recovered and repainted.
This intervention has given the living area the warm and enveloping nuances of wood, which is the great protagonist of the room.
In the dining room the demolition brought to light a mosaic floor in green and red Egyptian porphyry, which has been restored by completing the irrecoverable parts. The same procedure was used for the mosaic flooring in other areas of the house, in white Naxos marble. 20,000 mosaic tiles were laid.
