An extension and renovation project that saw a semi-detached home sitting amidst a row of classic terrace houses in London brings modernity and cheerful elegance to what was once a dark and mundane residence.
Transforming the old mezzanine level into the new kitchen was accomplished by incorporating a stunning natural stone kitchen island cabinets draped in oak veneer and stainless steel worktops that complement the existing farmhouse-style stove perfectly.
The delicate balance between a contemporary home that offers ample privacy to those within its confines and still manages to allow them an unabated view of the scenic landscape is a hard one to accomplish.
It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.

Smart décor and a neutral color palette complete this delightful residence where the homeowners might just end up spending more time outdoors than inside!
