Dorlcote Road, Wandsworth

One of our last projects of 2016, this Victorian detached townhouse has been renovated into a beautiful family home. With a newly-built rear extension and complete re-arrangement of the internal layout, this was also one of our largest (and longest) projects to-date.

    The front reception room has been made into a family library and reading room, in a pseudo-Victorian style. The arrangement of picture, books and other items on the bookshelves offer a glimpse into the family’s life.

    A side look of the reading room, offering a look at the front. The large and bright windows give the room lots of brightness, while the vintage clock and writing desk tie nicely into the Victorian theme.

    Moving down to the back of the house, we come into the large, spacious kitchen. With space to spare, it’s the perfect place to host parties or family evenings. The chevron pattern wooden flooring, present throughout the entire Ground Floor, is most visible here and combines nicely with the dark navy blue tones of the counters and island.

    Focusing on the single piece of marble, which makes up the islands’ worktop, this image shows the ample room available. Acting as both a cooking area, housing the dual inset sink, and a breakfast/bar area, it still has space to spare! Made bright in the day by the large Crittall windows as well as the large skylight above, and amply lit otherwise by the four-in-one pendant overhead, it’s the focal point of the room.

    A shot centred on the worktop area of the island lets us better appreciate the inset dual sinks and their arrangement relative to the cooktops, designed to maximise both space and efficiency.

    Focusing on the outlying kitchen cabinet, we see its’ purpose as a display for the exquisite cutlery and dining sets. The skylight above flatters the cabinet with ample light.

    Moving on into the media room, this shot focuses on the custom-made cabinets and bookshelves which, like the front reception, have been devoted more to books and family mementos and ornaments, than to other media.

    Moving onto the first floor of the house, we enter the main bedroom of the house. Similarly to the front door of the house and the windows of the front reception, the top panels of the rooms’ windows are the original ones, refurbished to a premium condition. Again, similarly to the writing desk on the floor below, the style and arrangement of the beauty desk and drawers of the master bedroom hearken back to the Victorian age.

    The ensuite bathroom of the master bedroom was converted from another bedroom and as such is spacious and airy. The glass side panel, of the modern walk-in shower contributes to this feeling by providing an unobstructive separator. At the same time, the classical free-standing tub and its’ vintage tap give the bathrooms’ design a Victorian note. The unorthodox style of the marble tiling along the walls, along with the faux wood floor tiles, made to match the style of the Ground Floor, enforce a modernistic theme.

    Entering the property, the white tones of the hallway bring about a uniquely Victorian feeling to the place. The framed photos on the wall give the place life, a sense of homeliness — that this is not just a house, but a welcoming family home. The clear lines and design also let the beautiful chevron pattern of the floor to pop-out.

    Cloistered on the top floor, adjacent to the second bedroom is a small bathroom where the bath has been placed in a rather unorthodox spot — in the under-eaves space. Much like the rest of the bathrooms in the house, it features classical vintage taps on both the sink and tub.
