Inside a 13th Century English Country Manor Updated for Present Day Living

When it came to restoring the interior of this charming manor home, interior designer Emma Sims Hilditch was careful to be sensitive to its specular history while redefining the space better for modern living. Perched high above the local village and set amongst rolling lawns and a one-acre lake, the manor dates back to the 13th century when William the Conqueror gifted it to one of his favorite noblemen. Over time, the property has evolved into something of a historical jigsaw puzzle with Norman and Georgian architecture pieced together with wooden beams, stone walls, ancient flagstone floors, large fireplaces and detailed wooden paneling.
