Let your imagination drift far away to the wide-open, remote hunting, shooting, fishing landscape of Alaska — for that’s the inspiration behind the latest luxury lodge creation from Lissett. The Alaska is like nothing seen before.
This inviting home is inspired by a love of the great outdoors and the thrill of exploration, perfectly blending traditional and modern, natural textures and the highest-quality fittings and furniture.
The exterior shape is stunning shape and clad in white pine, lumbered just under the Arctic circle in Canada.
The decor concept creates the feel that you might be in the Alaskan countryside, remote but cocooned in a wonderfully cosy leisure home. And it has three bedrooms, making it a true family holiday lodge.
The décor theme is natural wood and grey. The kitchen cabinet doors are pale grey with a prominent grain; the frames are plain blue grey and so is the wall. Lighting focuses down from the undersides of the top cabinets. A wine chiller is built into the cabinet suite, along with a Bosch double oven, grill and microwave.
A slide-out, tall shelved cabinet and a dishwasher are also integrated into the cabinet arrangement. In the centre of the kitchen, a square island unit provides a breakfast area, plus drawers and cabinets.
The dining suite is a large country farmhouse style ranch table with one bench seat and four green leather upholstered chairs with stitched edging and rounded backs that create armchair comfort.
Two large leather-upholstered settees with green velvet seat cushions beomce a feature in the lounge. With an array of cushions; some velvet, some tartan, some with a soft geometric pattern. An enormous mirror set into the wall creates the illusion that the room is even larger than it is.
The bedroom area reveals more of the hunting-shooting-fishing theme — this time with a twist — a French railway twist. Bedroom furniture is created from timber that previously lay under French railway tracks. Machine-planed to ensure it is tactile-smooth and displays its fine grain, this wood looks amazing. It is harness in the wardrobes, cabinets and dressing tables used throughout the bedrooms.
The main bedroom has a window above the bedhead as well as windows on each side of the bed. The carpet pile in the bedrooms is so deep it’s noticeable even when wearing shoes.
The en-suite has a double-sized shower and two washbasins, each with a mirrored cabinet above. The towel warmer is finished in a stunning matt pale bronze colour.
A skylight ensures the second bedroom is a lovely bright space.
Deep-buttoned, grey headboards, together with the beautiful natural wood, creates a luxury, woodland aspect.
The third bedroom, with the same deep buttoned, fine-velvet upholstered headboard and lovely, smooth wood cabinetry, is also a delightful environment.
The main bathroom has a P-shaped bath with an over-bath shower and another pale bronze finished towel warmer. One wall is entirely mirrored. Light shines down from the cabinet above the mirror.
