Built to mirror the timeless grace of its adjoining Victorian property, this elegant family home is a beautiful example of how sympathetic styling can smoothly unify old and new, creating something both classic and contemporary.

Set in a prime commuter belt location, the property appeals to upwardly mobile city professionals, and as such is built to an extremely high specification. Among other stipulations, planning conditions specified the use of wooden sash windows in keeping with the period character. Windows Etc was pleased to suggest Bereco products, a supplier known for providing quality and function uncompromised by the necessary period styling. They offer all the advantages of modern double glazing, combined with traditional materials and finish, and can be factory sprayed to any chosen shade.

Despite its traditionally handsome double front, the interior exudes a stylish modernity, with an abundance of natural light. This is enhanced beautifully with Bereco Timber Sash Windows, including two bays, which bring a delightful additional airiness to the ground floor. A satin chrome finish transports traditional sash lifts and catches into present day chic, matching the property’s bulb end door handles.

A spacious entrance hall gives way to the property’s pièce de résistance; an artistically designed kitchen area, leading onto the large rear garden. An exposed wall of locally sourced, handmade brick, vaulted ceiling, and bespoke handcrafted cabinets, all combine to create a serenely beautiful living area. The overall impression is one of clean lines and simple elegant open space. Smarts Aluminium bi-folding doors effectively extend this space out into the garden, opening fully to provide an unbroken transition from inside to out. A 3-3-0 configuration provides a traffic door, adding convenience to this really striking modern feature.

Echoing the roomy entrance hall, an equally generous landing leads to four double bedrooms, two with en suites, and a very swanky family bathroom. Again, the calibre of the project is apparent, oozing style and quality with an obscure glass Bereco sash, handmade bathroom cabinets, and a gorgeously decadent slipper bath.
