CARO SOMERSET is a new lifestyle store, café and B+B in Bruton, Somerset designed by EMIL EVE ARCHITECTS with colours, fittings and styling by owner Natalie Jones.
The Grade II Listed highstreet property has been extensively reconfigured, refurbished and extended to become a new destination in Bruton, home of Hauser + Wirth and The Chapel.
The store and café inhabit the ground floor front rooms. The historic character of the building has retained, creating a series of unique spaces where unusual designer products are displayed on bespoke furniture and coffee and beautiful Bakemonger cakes can be enjoyed perched at the counter or relaxing in the calm salon.
Behind and above the public spaces, a family home and b+b accommodation have been created. To the rear, a large larch-clad extension houses an open-plan kitchen and living area with contemporary detailing complimenting the historic building fabric.
