Set at the bottom of a peaceful garden, this one-bedroom home is tucked away from it all.
A tranquil escape from city life awaits at The Avenue. Step through the metal gates and a feeling of complete privacy prevails. Peeking through the trees, this characterful home is hidden at the bottom of a courtyard-style garden that wouldn’t seem out of place in the countryside.
Take the stepping-stone path past mature shrubs to the conservatory entrance – a sensitive addition that sits in harmony with the property’s period bones. Green-framed doors and windows mirror the leafy surroundings, while up on the first floor, a preserved barn door nods to the building’s heritage.
Inside, exposed brick creates a cosy feel, and a glass roof invites the outside in. Set up as a dining room, complete with a table that comfortably seats six, it’s an atmospheric space for entertaining. Throw open the doors in the warmer months, and light candles and the log burner when cooler nights draw in.
The open-plan living room and kitchen are similarly well considered. Kick back on the L-shaped sofa – integrated shelving providing plenty of space to house your reading materials and record collection.
Navy cabinets and a colourful gallery wall of artwork pop against white walls and worktops in the kitchen, where more open shelving adds a stylish finish and accentuates the ceiling height. From here, you can look out through the conservatory onto the garden, offering a great sense of perspective and volume. A convenient cloakroom is also found on this floor.
Up the spiral staircase, the soothing bedroom suite is found in the eaves. Four Velux windows bathe the space in natural light, while a dressing area maximises the available footprint. The pared-back en suite features a rainfall shower over a bathtub, plus a wooden cabinet under the basin for extra storage.
