This sweet, sweet Grade II listed property sits on a quite private road in Dulwich, South East London. This property is such a great example of making good use of small spaces. I love the unusual use of over-sized pieces of furniture which gives the cottage a surreal Alice in Wonderland feel.
Architectural salvage furniture is featured throughout the cottage which blends well with the polished cast iron radiators, exposed brickwork, flock wallpapers, slate and terrocotta flooring.
The rear extentsion is flooded with natural light from both the roof lights and floor to ceiling steel glass doors. The bespoke polished concrete units and worktops add that industrial feel whilst the crystal chandeliers and wallpaper add a touch of glamour.
Leading out onto decking…the small urban garden is crammed with tropical plants raised up behind a bank of railway sleepers to a slate deck. I wish I loved in Ned’s House!
