Let's take a look around. After you...
This terraced home is painted in a modern neutral shade, hinting at the stylish interiors within.
After entering through the warm and welcoming hall, step left and you’ll walk into the double living room. This large space has been finished to a beautiful standard and boasts both bay windows and double fireplaces for the cosiest of evenings. Keeping things light, there are glass doors leading in from both the hall and the kitchen, creating an on-trend broken-plan look.
Another nifty detail? The contemporary interpretation of the ceiling cornicing. The strong lines combined with the mid-century modern furniture creates a cool and stylish look.
At the back of this chic London home is a wonderful open-plan kitchen-diner with a table comfortably seating 6. The modern fittings, like the concrete flooring, industrial-style lighting and black-stained wood island, continue the stylish modern theme of the home. Skylights and Crittal-style double doors add extra natural light, too.
In the south-facing garden, which offers a raised deck area, in-built seating, surrounded by plants and shrubbery. Looking back towards the house you can fully see the contemporary extension that adds so much light and space to the property.
Heading to the first floor, you find three double bedrooms and well as the good-sized family bathroom, all with plenty of storage. The second floor then has another family bathroom and a further two double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room – definitely the one to choose.
Leaving these rooms behind, the minimalist white staircase continues up to another level, with a special surprise awaiting you at the end.
Outdoor space is such a luxury in London, so what could be better than a secret roof terrace? With views over the surrounding rooftops, this chic and contemporary space has built in seating and room for planters, so you can add a burst of colour or texture. As well as being a lovely spot for a cup of tea, it might also prove a useful private space for sunbathing come summer!
