The kitchen has silastone work tops, recessed lighting and a light scheme. Miele appliances are built-in and are included in the sale. The kitchen is part open-plan with an awesome breakfast bar (with further kitchen cupboards underneath). An L-shaped feature wall has built-in cupboards for crockery/pans/food etc., and the rear of the room is pretty much all glazing. The roof of the kitchen is also part-glazed with a four large skylight windows, perhaps most strikingly is the amount of natural light sweeping in from all angles. Also on this floor is a guest bathroom and utility room with washing machine / tumble drier.
Find a large bedroom on the first floor. It takes the width of the house - 15ft. Built-in wardrobes keep matters tidy.

The second floor (top) hosts the master bedroom again with en-suite. The seller has allowed a budget so you can design your own built in wardrobes in this room which can be fitted between exchange and completion. Also on this floor is a study/nursery room with window to garden views, it could just as happily be enjoyed as a fifth bedroom if you preferred.
The heating system consists of 'wet under floor heating' to the ground floor, radiators to the upper floors (all powered by gas), heated towel rails in the bathrooms. The boiler is a low energy boiler hot water system with large storage tank.

Internally the materials are chosen to be light, warm and contemporary. Understated to allow the new owners to design the spaces to their own character.
Externally the material palette consists of a carefully selected range of harmonious and high-quality materials, detailed to produce a scheme which enhances the character of the area. High quality render matching that used on neighbouring properties, reproduction London stock bricks, cast stone, and painted timber joinery will echo the quality of the materials found in the surrounding Georgian and Victorian buildings
Perhaps the most important thing of all, it is designed and built by an architect (and landscape architect) as something they would live in themselves, each area has been carefully planned and built so that internally the materials are chosen to be light, warm and contemporary where the homeowner can quickly design the space to their own character.
