The Mansion House Durham

In this exclusive residence, a pivoting entrance door leads to a long hallway, with full height painted panelling throughout. There are mirror finish stainless steel inlays to the panelled pilasters that flank the sliding glass door to the kitchen/living area, which hint to the more contemporary tone that lies beyond.

The contemporary ultra wide sliding etched glass door allows a view to the room beyond.

At the far end of the hallway, a grey tinted mirrored wall blends into the panelling, fusing a contemporary note with the traditional lines.

At the base of the stairs, to the right, the full height panelling cleverly conceals a secret doorway to the Cloakroom. The panelling continues up the staircase, at half height.
