A restrained palette and thoughtful finishes characterise this stylish suburban home. The open-plan kitchen and reception room beckons sunshine in through two skylights, creating an uplifting feel. Arranged around an island, a pared-back shaker-style kitchen features integrated appliances and an understated look. Prepare a meal on the sleek glass hob then dine at the striking marble breakfast bar.
Light from a generous bay window dresses the monochrome charcoal cabinetry in a blue hue. Meanwhile, an elegant pendant light is framed by a ceiling rose – a nod to the home’s period framework.
Parquet flooring flows past a comfortable dining area, thick-framed internal glazing adding an industrial accent. Grounded by a fireplace and with a built-in speaker system, the living area is optimised for entertaining. Visual noise disappears into the walls thanks to bespoke joinery. Beyond, a reading nook is framed by generous Crittall-style doors which lead out to the garden. A quiet retreat, it features a barbecue and a seating area – for al fresco dining on a summer’s afternoon. At the rear, a garden room is a flexible space for exercising, watching films or homeworking.
A haven of understated design decisions, the principal bedroom suite sits on the first floor. Wainscotting quietly adorns the walls which are punctuated with matte-black light fixtures. A bank of fitted wardrobes conceals a door leading to the en suite bathroom. This marble-wrapped space features a dual vanity and a walk-in rainfall shower. The considered palette continues into three further bedrooms, each maximising light and space. On the second floor, a family bathroom features a freestanding bath and a console basin.
