The Old Farmhouse

Explore this idyllic farmhouse in North Wales, featuring a perfect Masterclass handleless kitchen.
In June 2017, Jim Ellis embarked on an extraordinary development project in Llyn Peninsula, North Wales with the help of Huw Gray in Dyffryn.
His vision was to develop a neglected stone farmhouse belonging to the Ellis family so that it could be used as a retirement property for Jim's parents in the future and a holiday rental in the meantime. He intended to build a large extension at the rear of the farmhouse for the kitchen, dining and living areas.
The space that Jim had to work with was impressive and the views next to none. Not only is it possible to see the Snowdon, the space also overlooks stretches of gorgeous green fields and stunning trees, making you feel completely immersed in nature.
To make the most of this outstanding scenery, Jim chose to install large glass sliding doors so that the views are always visable. He said "I wanted to maximise the views, so that from inside it feels like there's nothing between us and nature".
The mountain views can even be seen upon the kitchen island, as Jim opted for H Line Lumina Gloss so that the mountains could reflect on the doors. The gloss finish also allows the natural light to bounce around the kitchen.
This kitchen is a perfect example of how gloss looks beautiful in a kitchen that has an abundance of natural light. Gloss is also a great choice for smaller kitchens as the light that bounces off the gloss creates the illusion of more space, thus making your kitchen look bigger.
The project was completed in April 2019. Since then, the beautiful farmhouse has been enjoyed by many people looking to take a break and immerse themsevles in the countryside.
