Why you’ll like it:

The facade of this Victorian terraced house is smart in lemon cream with its architectural features picked out in white. This flat encompasses the entire lower ground floor and has the traditional layout you would expect. You approach down some stone steps past a sweet front garden, through a secure gate to the front door which opens into a long hallway with lavender painted floor boards, and hooks for your coats and bags.

The bright and generous living room is first on the right, and this has stripped and varnished floorboards in warming honey tones, and an open fire takes centre stage with a decorative mantle in keeping with the period. There's ample space in the bay for a dining table and chairs, and there's plenty of space left for comfortable sofas, plus useful shelving has already been built into the alcoves.

Next door is the bedroom which is a good double and still allows for larger pieces of freestanding bedroom furniture without compromising on floor space. It is painted a soothing dusky rose, and another sash window frames the delightful garden views.

At the end of the hallway, and past bounteous storage is the contemporary kitchen which has units in white gloss topped with maple wood work surfaces for a happy contrast. There's space in here for a tall fridge freezer and a washing machine, but the Smeg oven and gas hob are integrated. A terracotta tiled floor and mini glass brick splash backs complete the stylish look.

You access the bathroom from here and this too is on trend with a slate floor and a modern white suite with a shower above the bath. A door from the kitchen leads to the garden which is a real sun trap in the warmer months, and is an oasis with a mixture of English roses and Foxgloves with a tropical palm tree in the corner. It is the perfect size for dining al fresco and it feels very private.

Bear in mind:

Whilst this flat is technically lower ground floor, it is set well back from the road and is only half lower, so the living room is wonderfully light and it is open to the back so the flat gets sun throughout the day.
