Take a tour around a modern white Georgian house in north London

The lower-ground floor of this Georgian semi has a kitchen/dining/living area, utility room and WC, with a double-height space above the dining zone.

The lower-ground floor of this Georgian semi has a kitchen/dining/living area, utility room and WC, with a double-height space above the dining zone. Overlooking this is the mezzanine library and formal living room. The main bedroom, his-and-hers dressing rooms, main bathroom and a WC are on the first floor. The boys' bedrooms are on the second floor, as is a WC, bathroom and guest bedroom suite.

Laid out in classic chevron fashion, rich engineered boards add a final luxe touch to this mezzanine library. Chosen to match the bespoke shelving, the flooring makes the perfect backdrop for showcasing the owner's capsule collection of furniture and accessories....

Handleless units are a great way to create a streamlined feel. Bring your kitchen right up to date with an on-trend monochrome scheme. Here, the owners chose a black marble splashback to prevent the room from feeling too white and sterile.
