    In the much sought-after London borough of Chiswick, this house resides on an idyllic tree-lined residential street. We love the original tiled path, that leads to a beautifully presented entrance porch.

    The hallway leads straight through to an incredibly impressive open-plan kitchen. The clever use of glass roof panels allows for privacy while at the same time flooding the room with plenty of natural light. A generous central island anchors the kitchen elements of the space.

    While large decorative lettering clearly zones the dining are of the open-plan kitchen space.

    The herringbone-style flooring adds a stylish finish to this practical family room.

    The master bedroom is a room filled with triumphant design elements. From the wall on the movable tread to built-in storage and the statement skylight windows, it’s an incredibly creative use of space.

    The wall can be moved to allow the room to be reconfigured, creating a fluid layout. It acts as a clever barrier to zone off the en-suite bathroom.

    The sloping ceilings are no problem for this clever loft conversion. A shower is housed at one end under the sloping roof, with a bath sitting prominently in the middle of another.

    Multiple skylights provide plenty of natural light, creating the ideal revitalising bathroom environment.

    The modern glass extension adds a contemporary feel to the period property. The sliding doors provide a seamless transition to the outdoor space, which includes a sizeable patio – perfect for entertain.

    This stunning house is currently on the market with Savills, with a £1.8million asking price. We can but dream.
