Step inside this restored Victorian terrace in Middlesex

The owners bought this two-bed Victorian terraced house in Middlesex in 2013. ‘The house was a 1970s nightmare, with a riot of pine panelling, damp patches, a failing flat roof, crumbling plaster, dated kitchen units and run-down flooring,’ says the owner.

‘Now we’ve replastered the walls and given it a tasteful colour scheme, fitted a raised roof and installed a new kitchen a bathroom.’

The couple weren’t fazed by taking on a house that required a lot of work. The house was in dire need of care and attention, but as the couple are both fairly handy and up for a challenge they didn’t find it too daunting.
