Take a look around this stylish contemporary flat in Surrey

This one-bedroom garden flat is part of a Victorian conversion in Surrey. The owners bought the flat in August 2013 and, while it was very spacious, it wasn’t decorated to their taste. The kitchen and floors were tired and the garden was dull. It’s now calm and stylish with oak floors, neutral walls and pops of colour from accessories.

‘This is the first place we’ve bought together, so we wanted it to be right and, although it’s just a one-bed flat, we’ve actually got a lot of room,’ says the owner. ‘Our friend, who’s an estate agent, said it offered more like the space found in a three-bed flat.’

The couple wanted a home with outdoor space both for themselves and so that their Staffordshire bull terrier, Monsieur, had a garden to play in.

‘As soon as we looked around this flat, we knew it was perfect. It needed updating, but the rooms were a good size and the garden was a bonus as it’s hardly overlooked,’ says the owner.
