Interesting properties for you this week are, on the one hand, classic Victorian terraced houses whose owners are using the space they have rather than spending on expansion – often adding new rooms. It does not mean enlarging the existing rooms – but there is also room to add value by reducing the number of bedrooms from 4 to 5 and adding bathrooms.
I want to see?It’s adorned in a wonderfully restful palette that’s perfect for this week and it hits the market Inigo at £1,250,000.the first to call floor plan Separate tabs let you switch between photos and plans.
It has a classic Victorian terrace layout, but instead of incorporating it into the side return to expand the small kitchen, the owners have moved the kitchen to the back half of the living room. The narrow space in the back is the downstairs bathroom and utility room.
Given that the current cost of building a side return extension in London at this point seems to start at £120,000 with a plaster finish, look at the space you have and make it work without having to dig a foundation. It’s definitely worth checking to see if it can be done. Start pouring concrete.
These pages detailed the problem with the back half of the living room when knocked out, and whether you can find a useful use for that space. Well away from the previous room. Also, moving the kitchen to the back of the house and extending the side return will give you a large kitchen diner, but may eliminate the downstairs bathroom.
There’s no right or wrong answer, but it’s important to take the time to consider how you live, what you need, and how it works within your budget. The downstairs shower room is great for seniors, seniors and those with young children. Plus, in this house he only has one upstairs bathroom and there are 5 bedrooms, so maybe he needs a second bathroom.
The current owners are using the front reception as a dining room, so the kitchen is open plan and this area occupies the entire ground floor. This means that you can live in this space all day and go upstairs to the living room (traditionally the master bedroom) in the evening. means that
There are 3 bedrooms on the top floor. You can use one as an office or turn it into a bathroom. Spacious and elegant 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with large living space and luxurious living room. Again, this isn’t for everyone, but it’s always worth looking at the floor plan and figuring out what you need from it.
This is marketed as five bedrooms, so that means the instinctive reaction is to see a sofa placed at the end of the dining room and start worrying about expanding assuming there’s no living room. Depending on the number of people moving in (and if you need to sit around the dining table), you might be able to put a small table downstairs and make the space act as a living and dining space.
Or you can put a small table in front of the bay window behind the kitchen and eat there, freeing up the front room for sofa work. With so many options, people often just accept the room label they’re given and don’t think about how to fine-tune the space to fit their lifestyle.
So who’s moving in this week? Or who modified the traditional layout to create something that works better?
