The Secret Cottage


To overcome the challenges of listed building constraints to create a quirky yet functional kitchen, cleverly working within the limited space available to create a kitchen equipped for entertaining, offering ample storage and much needed work space.


A kitchen which compliments the quirky characteristics of this listed building, this design comprises different free-standing units in different colours with different paint finishes, cleverly enhanced by the inclusion of different worktops. All of these units are subtly linked by the cherry wood knobs featured throughout as well as the cherry work top space and the traditional cherry wood peg board. Although a limited space, the design accommodates a large cooker fit for entertaining whilst the wall space is made available for additional storage. The previously redundant space in an alcove is used to house a traditional mini country-style dresser, an addition which provides yet more essential storage whilst complimenting the rustic features of this quintessential English home.

What the client said

We had a kitchen made by James Reeve a few years ago and continue to be delighted with the result. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the cupboards, drawers,etc., are all as well fitting and solid as the day they were completed. Since then James has been back to make a wall cupboard and some shelves for the kitchen, and also a fitted wardrobe and cupboard in a bedroom. James has good customer awareness, pays attention to your needs and can interpret your ideas. He is also able to give good advice and make appropriate suggestions from his own experience. He is very pleasant, completely relible and trustworthy. We give him a key so he can come and go, as necessary, and get on with the job himself. He is an organised and tidy worker and always cleans up after himself. We have no hesitation in recommending Anderson Reeve. You need look no further for quality bespoke furniture and a thoroughly professional service, from a really talented guy.
