A delightful two bedroom terraced house, bursting with personality
Behind this ever-so-polite Victorian facade lives a home that both delights and intrigues. This charming two bedroom house, just off Columbia Road, is in the heart of the Jesus Green Conservation area - an outstandingly well preserved estate of workers houses designed by Henry Robert Abraham in the 1860’s.
The house itself has been improved and extended over the years, whilst retaining its character and charm. Head inside, kick your shoes off from exploring the weekend markets and soak up the warm atmosphere in the living room. Here is the perfect spot to marvel at your sophisticated home and treasures. There’s plenty of room to keep books, art and things that mean a lot to you. Extra points for spotting the storage under the stairs…This space has been opened up to create a more expansive flow, and is cleverly linked to the kitchen and beyond by an internal window which draws the eye and brings in natural light.
Sunset hues, rustic-luxe materials and lots of shiny glass to see the outside world, are all found in the kitchen area. The kitchen is a comfortable place in which to cook and entertain, and is an area this family spends a lot of time in - not simply eating or cooking, but as a workspace and a second reception area. Fling the doors open and dine alfresco in the privacy of your own garden. The blinds diffuse the afternoon light in summer, or act as a frame for impressive sunsets.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, the second of which has been cleverly divided into two areas, allowing young children to have separate spaces. This versatile space can easily be changed back into a double bedroom. The master bedroom next-door is a peaceful haven. The feature wall steals the show here, but the space is generous. The bathroom is a sophisticated place to have an indulgent bathe in the roll top bath. Keeping the feature fireplace in here has proven to be a great choice.
