Bit of a masterpiece, I'd say, but a shame that a radiator is blocked by a sofa and the part of the garden on show is a wall of breeze blocks. Perhaps there's a plan to clad those in the future, but I don't see a way out for the sofa/radiator dilemma. Suspect neither of these two gripes are anything to do with the refurb., though.

Impressed with the layout and that frontage is inspired and wowsome. Love it. Personally not keen on the white throughout as I'm a 'colour gal'... But each to their own as they say.

Was thinking however that with 3 children and 3 bedrooms, 2 of them will be sharing which is fine when they're young but teenagers like and need their own space... Seems a pity to spend all this money and create this fab home knowing you might have to move in a few years... UNLESS you're planning for one of them to take over the guest room...?

I'm not sure I like what's been done here. The interior finishes are lovely but it looks as though the owners have lost most of their garden to create the extension. When I was looking for a new property last year, I saw loads of houses on estates like this, where the owners had spent so much money turning what was originally a pleasant well-balanced house into one that erupted in all directions, without any regard for the ceiling price of the road. Personal taste is exactly that - personal - and if this is the current owners' 'forever' home, and they love it, then that's all that matters. However, most of us eventually sell on and I've a feeling that the quirky appearance of this house may not stand the test of time.
