The Story

LIVING LARGE
Perhaps the most striking aspect of the home is how much light pours in through the windows. The sense of space created is truly astonishing and is a major factor in creating a contemporary feeling inside such a traditional building.
“It combines the classical – features such as the fireplace and the high ceilings – with the modern,” he points out. “We are really proud of the décor and the use of space.”
The owners’ keen eye for design and aesthetics are apparent throughout the home; one particularly interesting example is the sumptuous feature wall in the inviting dining room.
“We used polished plaster to give it a wonderful marble-like shimmer. It gives us all the positives of a feature wall without being overbearing – it is very subtle,” says Anna

A FEAST FOR THE EYES
The long modern kitchen has an abundance of surface and storage space. The vibrant modern design, with units in a red high gloss, and the numerous windows combine to create a bright ambience. There is room at the end for a table and chairs and French windows open up on to the garden.
“It is very well lit, which I feel opens the whole room up. The French windows lead on to the raised deck in the back, where it is lovely to sit first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.”

CONSIDERED BEAUTY
The upstairs bathroom is a relatively new addition to the cottage, added by the previous owner during his renovation. It is certainly an attractive room and one that has made a particular impact on Tom.
“For me, the bathroom is one of the stand-out features of the property. It is a huge room and the way that the window overlooks the garden gives it a sense of real tranquillity,” he says.
As well as a built in bath, the room is host to a generously sized stand-alone double shower. Both features serve as a further example of the inspirational use of space and light throughout the cottage.
“The design is all very purposeful. The shower even has a small shelf built into the wall for shampoo and soap – everything is very considered.”

SIGNATURE STYLE
Two spacious bedrooms upstairs have a delightfully understated charm. Once again, the simple yet effective style works beautifully. Here sunlight pours into both rooms, allowing full appreciation of the cottage’s signature feature walls.
“This wall has something of a sandy hessian effect. It is a wonderful presence without ever feeling oppressive. It is polished plaster once again but the visual effect is so profound that it is sometimes hard to tell what material is actually used!” says Anna.
Both rooms have large built-in, floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, further evidence of the cottage’s hidden practical capabilities. The wardrobe in the master bedroom also allows for access to the boarded floor attic.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
Nestled within the picturesque back garden of the cottage lies a flexible self-contained studio space that also brims with potential. With a full bathroom and shower, this could easily be used as guest accommodation.
“It is large enough that we use one side as a home office, which is fully wired in with wifi and a phone line, and the other as a snug. It is well insulated and cosy for the winter but glorious and open in summer.” Tom says. “It is fantastic for entertaining: we had about 20 people round after the races last year. With the kitchen and studio both opening out into the garden, this house is perfect for warm summer evenings with friends.”

Setting The Scene

The garden at the house on Church Road has given Tom and Anna immense pleasure.
“It is one of the best features of the property: we have had many gardeners in over the years so it has a very landscaped feeling to it – and has been exceptionally well-maintained.”
In the garden, there is more evidence of Tom and Anna’s deft blend of the traditional and the modern. Nestled among the mature trees and shrubbery at the far end of the lawn is a large terrace with a discreetly hidden electrical power point.
“The huge terrace area at the back makes a great dining area. It’s south-facing so gets radiant sunlight while remaining secluded.”
