"Alivar has furnished a historic building in Surrey

Built in 1850, this historic Georgian-style property is located on a hilltop in the peacefulcountry setting of Surrey, an English county located in the South-East with a beautiful viewoverlooking the hilly landscape.The property was recently superbly refurbished as part of a prestigious residential projectthat, in addition to the historic building, features six new apartments.The manor house, which is surrounded by an enchanting garden, has two floors: on theground floor, there is a kitchen, living area, dining room and bathroom; on the first floorthere are three bedrooms, each fitted with an en-suite bathroom, a walk-in closet, a utilityroom and storage space.Alivar's furnishing solutions were chosen for this important project in which practicality andfunctionality come together in the purest of forms, devoid of excessive decorativeelements, to create a contemporary style.

In the spacious living area, the great Portofino sofas and footstools take centre stage.With their slender, sinuous shapes and neutral beige and dove-grey tones, they catch theeye thanks to their sophisticated minimalism. 'Accompanying' the padded Portofinofurniture is Poggio, the small rectangular table with its slender structure which frames thelight, elegant marble top.In the dining room, guests are invited to sit on the soft, comfortable Diva chairs which alignaround the large Board table which features a striking, symmetrical design and marblesurface. The dining area also features Side Up, two sideboards which conceal anexclusive bar unit fitted with drawers and shelves.In line with the hyper-modern style of the kitchen are the Kiron stools with seats inpolycarbonate. Thanks to the gas mechanism of its chromed steel frame, this stool isadjustable and can rotate 360°. -

On the 1st floor of the property, which houses the sleeping area, you find the masterbedroom which features the Arca bed with a headboard that has a stitching pattern thatrecreates a pleasant capitonné effect, and the Meridien bedside table with its small flushhandles.Completing the space is the relaxing Fortuna armchair, available even in its cow-hideversion on the veranda adjacent to the garden.And finally, Maya was chosen for one of the bedrooms: a bed with a large headboardwhich is slightly rounded and smoothed around the edges, almost wanting to hug theframe, and the Kube bedside table with surface top and handles padded in leather.

The style and design choices of each item, the accurate selection of the most prestigiousmaterials and the 100% Made in Italy craftsmanship are only some of the many reasonsbehind the excellence which reaches its peak at Alivar, and is showcased within thecontext of important, prestigious, luxury residential projects such as this one."
