Natural wood adds a rich warmth to any room, but when that wood is at eye level and higher, the effect is elevated to new heights. From wall uprights, ceiling rafters, and crossbeams to interior and exterior panelling, wood looks good wherever it’s used, and nowhere more so than in these properties with tremendous timbers.
