Take a tour around an Arts and Crafts semi


Living room, kitchen-diner, utility room, study, cinema room and playroom on the ground floor, four bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms upstairs.


Living room

An Edwardian fireplace in the living room has been given a modern makeover by painting it the same shade as the walls. The ornate ceiling plasterwork survived, despite one of the builders working upstairs putting his foot through it!


Cinema room

Providing a place to relax in the evenings, the downstairs cinema room is filled with comfy cushions and film memorabilia.



The wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed to create an open-plan family space. The owners also fitted wall-mounted rails for easy access to utensils. 



The luxurious roll-top bath (mounted on untreated oak blocks) and Le Corbusier chaise blend with original features in the master bedroom, but all the while maintaining a show-stopping open-plan scheme. Inspired by the feel of Babington House, it mixes traditional elements with very contemporary ones. A wood-burning stove has been added to keep the room cosy in winter.



The Aria mirror in the bathroom was chosen because it was a break from traditional style. The owners fell in love with this design instantly because they wanted something completely different.


Children's bedroom

This boy's bedroom is packed with colour. A statement rug brightens up white flooring, and a classic rocker adds another pop of red. The castle bed is a playful touch and is teamed with a cowboys and indians-inspired  wallpaper.
