This stunning Arts & Crafts home was in need of some tender loving care when this family moved in. Many of the original features were damaged and needed repair, and the owners wanted to return it to its former glory by keeping as much charm and authenticity as possible. But this is still a modern family home, so whilst renovation was important, equally important was the need to bring it up to date and make it functional for a young family. Original Arts & Crafts fireplaces were sourced and completely reinstated with newly fabricated wooden surrounds; vintage and antique furniture was placed alongside bespoke commissioned sofas and tables; patterned encaustic tiles provided a warm welcome in the entrance hallway, and aged oak parquet was laid seamlessly over existing floorboards, maintaining the integrity of the (albeit damaged) listed floor. The result is a warm and comforting family home that showcases the owners’ fabulous art collection, and allows them to enjoy the wonderful quirks of the building.
