Property type A 1930s bungalow with a loft conversion.
Space An open-plan kitchen/living/dining area, guest bedroom, home office and deck area on the ground floor; a master bedroom and bathroom upstairs.
What was a set of poky rooms has been transformed into a versatile, party-sized open-plan living space, that's also cosy and intimate. The house ticks all the boxes for 21st-century living: floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto the decked garden; a neutral backdrop with splashes of colour; and a mix of design classics and high street buys.
Different materials blend together in the elegant shower room, the vibrant floor contrasting with the muted walls, which are finished in polished plaster sealed with polyurethane.

The master bedroom is in what was originally a loft conversion. A monochrome scheme and soft lighting play up the tranquil and ambient mood. The headboard is a useful divider between the sleeping area and the entrance, with emphasis falling on the central bed.
