Set on the first floor of an attractive Victorian terraced house, this two-double-bedroom apartment has been beautifully remodelled by design-led property group Frame, and architect George Dawes. The careful, sympathetic restoration has maintained the original character and proportions of the building, while creating functional and flexible apartments. The result is an elegant, contemporary home with a natural, calming palette and considered design details.
This bright and airy apartment is accessed via a light-filled communal stairwell. Once inside, you will find the two double bedrooms to your right, a large double-spaced living area to your left and the bathroom directly ahead. The original restored hardwood floorboards run from the hallway throughout the entire flat, and each room benefits from a sash window.
The kitchen and living area are separated by concealed sliding doors, which can be closed to zone off the two individual rooms, or left open to create a generously proportioned open plan space. Both sides of the open plan living area benefit from their own sash windows, affording each section its own source of natural light.
The kitchen itself is made up of bespoke, custom-built plywood cabinetry and built-in alcove shelving. Both bedrooms are large enough for double beds, and the bathroom features a freestanding clawfoot soaking tub with an overhead rain shower.
The details of this well-designed flat have been carefully considered and executed. The restored floorboards – sanded with lye and white matt oil – keep the palette natural and warm. The serene, calming Little Greene paint brings warmth to the light that reaches every corner. And the striking porcelain light switches add a pleasing tactility throughout.
