A detached house in Surrey, built in 1920. The ground floor has a living room, kitchen-diner, utility room, two store rooms, a games room, boot room, study, WC, wet room and a second kitchen. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a WC, dressing room and master bedroom. The loft has been converted into the master bedroom, with an adjoining sitting room and another bathroom. Outside, timber cladding gives the house that Cape Cod-meets-Surrey look.

3/9 Living room storage
Art books on the shelves and paintings add colour to the otherwise neutral scheme.
The modern, streamlined look in the kitchen provides a nice contrast to the wooden beams and works with the rest of the house.
5/9 Dining room
A contemporary botanical-print silk wallpaper and reclaimed wooden furniture create a quintessentially British twist on minimal-chic look in this dining room.
Wide floorboards with a pale finish give a distinctly Scandi feel throughout the house, while the wall panelling used on the landing adds character.
The dark stone flooring in this modern bathroom provides a neat contrast to the white walls and pale floorboards. A deep, circular bathtub adds a touch of glamour and works well with contemporary furnishings.
8/9 Dressing room
The dressing room's central island contains drawers and open shelves for the owner's shoe collection, while hidden-away built-in wardrobes provide ample hanging space.
9/9 Loft bedroom
Built-in bedroom alcoves contain sculptures, while the beams and skylights create a light, bright, country feel.
