A shared entrance and stairway give access to the home’s private front door on the first floor, opening into a welcoming reception hall (with useful storage). It sets a wonderful first impression thanks to soft, contemporary décor beautifully paired with original timber-panelled doors and wood-styled flooring. In the impressive living room, a wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining awaits. Here, the elegant décor is enhanced by a rich-toned timber floor and lovely period details, including an intricate cornice and ceiling rose.

Across the hall is the dining room, which enjoys generous floorspace for a choice of furniture and a contemporary gas fireplace – ideal for cosy dinner parties. Conveniently adjacent is a charming, Shaker-inspired kitchen, featuring two walls of clotted-cream coloured cabinets, with contrasting beech-toned worktops. An integrated hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, and space for a washing machine are incorporated into the design. Also located on this level is a spacious double bedroom, with tranquil, neutral décor and a plush carpet for added comfort. A white-tiled, three-piece family bathroom, with a shower over-the-bath, completes the first-floor accommodation.
