Previously an old Victorian warehouse built 1890, this property has been converted into a contemporary three-storey home. It has an open-plan kitchen-diner and living room, which are adjoined by a separate wet room, plus a master bedroom with en suite and a guest bedroom.
1/10 Exterior of house
2/10 View from Dining area
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.
3/10 Wet room
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.

5/10 Kitchen diner Table
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.
You can pick up a similar table to this at IKEA.
6/10 Seating area
The adjustable side table is from Aram.
7/10 Living room
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

9/10 Open plan ensuite
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
10/10 Guest bedroom
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.
