Visitors are greeted in a large open space with a view of the lower floor of the house. The living room and the kitchen-diner are divided by a subtly hidden wet room, which is a quirky surprise for visitors. The open-plan idea teamed with black flooring creates a classy, contemporary feel to the antique building.

The slate flooring is from Delabole Slate.

Separating the kitchen-diner from the living space, this cube-like wet room uses understated white sainitaryware to provide a contrast to dark slate walls and floor tiles, giving the room a real modern edge.

The Duravit basin is from Select bathrooms.

Light shines from each end of the ground floor through the galley kitchen. The vibrant colour of the kitchen units help to bring out the pink and red tones of the granite walls.

The far end of the kitchen-diner is filled with light; a perfect place for the dining table. The owners have teamed designer chairs with a simple inexpensive table to create a hamonious combination.

The modern furniture in the seating area and living room contrast charmingly with the original walls of the building. A white painted ceiling and bookcase for storage keep the heavy walls elegant.

The adjustable side table is from Aram.

Classic, timeless colours are used for the living room furniture, again incorperating tones in the walls to bring out light pinks in summer and crimson warmth in winter. 

The sofa is from Chaplins.

8/10 Open-plan Bedroom

Light permeates the bedroom from all directions with its open layout. Simplistic colours and tones are used to create a relaxing peaceful space. Wall art and a yellow rug inject a splash of fun.

The en-suite bathroom, neatly tucked under the eaves, is just as light and peaceful as the bedroom. The bath sits in a bespoke limestone surround. The same material has been used to clad the double washstand that sections off the bathing area without creating an obvious barrier.

This Duravit Vero undermount basin is from Ocean bathrooms

The second floor bedroom suite can be closed off for privacy, but still enjoys a view up or down to the next level of the building through a glass panel.
