A kitchen firm has been chosen to help world-renowned designer Bruce Oldfield create an exclusive housing development.

Grange Interiors has been appointed to supply kitchens for the £17m Carlton Terrace project, which involves restoring 14 Georgian and Victorian town houses in Jesmond Road West, Newcastle. The homes are expected to sell for between £1m and £2m each.

Mr Oldfield recently visited the Grange Interior's factory in North Tyneside to meet the craftsmen and finalise the designs.

Head interior designer Angela-Marie Goodwin will work with Mr Oldfield to design kitchens that reflect the tastes of each owner.

She said: "I will be working closely with Bruce to deliver imaginative, state-of-the-art kitchens. Each homeowner can choose from the best appliances from renowned manufacturers, such as Miele and Gaggenau, incorporating the latest technology and labour-saving devices."

Also on the team is Chelsea Flower Show award winner Alan Capper, from Newcastle firm Kent Design, who will design the walled gardens to the back of each home.

Homeowners will be able to consult Bruce Oldfield and his design team on colour, textiles, lighting and furniture.

Mr Oldfield said: "John Dobson designed these homes and I intend to restore them to their former glory, to a condition that I hope he, and the people of Newcastle, would be proud of."
