Wander around this charming Victorian home in Hertfordshire

When the owners bought this two-bed semi-detached Victorian home in Hertfordshire they were renting a property in the same street. ‘This was a godsend as we were lucky enough to be able to carry on renting for a month after completing, which meant we could get a lot of the messier jobs done before actually moving in.’

The owners have renovated the whole house. It has a cosy but modern feel to it, combined with traditional elements. ‘We were excited about its potential and having our own home, but knew there was a lot of work to be done. Structurally, the house was sound, but internally, there was a huge amount to do.’
