Situated on a calm, rural street, this period property is packed with character and charm, from the country-style exposed bricks to the welcoming front garden.
1/10 Period-style cottage house tour
2/10 Stylish entrance hall
Black and white floor tiles add character to this hallway and coincide with the traditional period-style feel of the rest of the home. A smart seating area with striped upholstery makes great use of the space beneath the stairs. Crisp white French doors lead through to the living room creating an open-plan and welcoming entrance.
3/10 Rustic console table
A rustic console table is perfect for the hallway. Keep smaller items, like keys, to hand in a drawer and keep your favourite accessories on display. A large mirror adds interest to the wall above, and a hanging heart wreath adds a country-style touch to the front door.
Get the look: The grey console table came from Cox & Cox (opens in new tab).
4/10 Classic living room
Smart classic furniture and upholstery creates a formal feel in this living room. An elegant antique-style coffee table stands out in the centre of the room and is teamed with softer touches like the velvet sofas, luxurious window furnishings and cosy rug.
Get the look: Both the sofas are by John Sankey and came, along with the curtains and blinds, from People Like Us (opens in new tab). The cushions came from Laura Ashley (opens in new tab), the coffee table from John Lewis (opens in new tab) and the rug is from The White Company (opens in new tab).
5/10 Country kitchen
At the heart of the home, this country kitchen is ideal for a large family. The kitchen and dining room were knocked together to create a large open-plan kitchen-diner where the family can enjoy casual breakfasts and relaxed dinners. Fans of entertaining, the owners installed a spiral wine-cellar underground.
Get the look: The splashback tiles came from Fired Earth (opens in new tab), the stools from John Lewis of Hungerford (opens in new tab) and the limestone flooring from Artisans of Devizes (opens in new tab). Spiral Cellars (opens in new tab) created this wine cellar.
6/10 Country kitchen with Belfast sink
This is packed with country-style charm, from the classic Belfast sink, to the plaid roller blind. Smart painted kitchen cabinets are perfect for keeping everything tucked away, while glass fronted cabinets allow their favourite accessories to remain on show.
Get the look: The kitchen units are by Thomas & Thomas (opens in new tab) and painted in French Gray (island and larder), String (sink run, right) and House White, all Farrow & Ball (opens in new tab).
7/10 Contemporary bathroom
The family bathroom and ensuite bathroom were knocked through to create one new big family bathroom. Pale flooring and walls keep the attic bathroom light and spacious, while splashback tiles in an earthy tone add definition. The country-style feel of the property is continued with a romantic roll-top bath.
8/10 Pretty bathroom accessories
Pretty accessories, such as the hanging heart, add touches of personality to the bathroom. A glass wall-mounted shelf provides space for cosmetics without dominating the space.
Get the look: The basin and mirror came from Fired Earth (opens in new tab).
9/10 Master bedroom
The dark wood sleigh bed and bedside table look great teamed with fresh white linen and the furry white rug. Golden tones on the bedroom walls and cushions create a soothing, relaxed feel, while accents of blue add colour.
Get the look: The bed, bedside table and blind fabric came from John Lewis (opens in new tab) and the bedlinen, rug and cushions came from The White Company (opens in new tab). The chest of drawers is from House of Fraser (opens in new tab).
10/10 Bedroom storage
A large chest of drawers provides ample bedroom storage for clothes and spare linens. Delicate decorative details such as the shells on the cushions provide bags of country charm.
Get the look: The walls are painted in Pale Sand by Laura Ashley (opens in new tab).
