Style Notes

Architecturally impressive. This beautiful home blends modern interior aesthetics (such as a glass ceiling, crittall-style doors and a contemporary square extension) with the historic bones of the property, seen clearly in the original bay windows and stained glass detailing. Soft tones and relaxing neutral tones complement the warming parquet flooring, while sleek contemporary bathrooms and industrial-style features in the kitchen bring the interiors up to date. We love the pretty front porch, the eye-catching modern art and the clever partition spaces in the kitchen.

Putney and Barnes, London

London's leafiest corner in the South West of the city is known for its charming village feel, green open spaces and riverside walks.

Also the starting point of the famous annual university Boat Race, this affluent area is home to a bustling high street of shops and restaurants, as well as countless sports grounds and the WWT London Wetlands Wildlife center. All this, and yet it's less than half an hour from the heart of the capital.
