Stumbled on this one very late in the day. As someone approaching retirement this really excites me to new downsizing possibilities, from London to the country. Probably a bit too isolated for me, but in every respect, bar one, I absolutely love it....except for the concrete floors! Always so slippery when wet, unforgiving and austere. Wood all the way for me. Well done, well deserved accolades, and for what appears to be a reasonable budget, too!

Oh, and thank you so much for the floor plan. Should be compulsory!

Dear kew134,

thank you for your positive comments. You'll be glad to hear we don't foist polished concrete floors on to all our clients, only the one who actually want them!

You are very welcome to give me call in the office if you would like to continue the conversation about potential downsizing/move to the country. Our Suffolk client did exactly that, but keeps a pied-a-terre flat in the Barbican for regular visits to London.
