Living Spaces

This B-listed large Victorian villa has been totally refurbished and updated to provide for the needs of a busy young family.


The existing layout has been retained at the front of the house with period features refurbished and new interior decoration in keeping with the style of the house.


At the rear, the careful demolition and removal of corridors and a maid's stair allowed a simple arrangement of interconnected family rooms to be created with a generous and peaceful master bedroom suite upstairs.


The north-facing rear elevation has been extended and opened up to the west to gather in the afternoon sun and give a sheltered terrace for outside dining.


The original bathroom has been refurbished. The cast iron tub and period towel rail have been retained and incorporated into the design and the original marble floor has been restored.


A new bathroom and dressing room have been created in the maid's room.


A second phase is planned to provide a garage, gym and training pool opening onto the garden.
