It’s a quintessential English country house but with a modern twist. The renovation of this 18th century home in Oxfordshire by has resulted in a light-filled family home with all the mod cons while retaining period features such as the beams and inglenook fireplace. The best of both worlds.
Polished concrete floors with exposed aggregate, rendered bathroom walls, raw brass, painted brick, breeze block, open plan living. These are a few of my favourite things. Oh I forgot to mention re-imagined retro houses, the swan-like transformation from tired blonde brick and boxy, dark rooms into stylish, light filled spaces perfect for beachside living.

“Simply, exists to create intelligent and ‘real’ family homes that facilitate the greatest luxury of all – easy and highly enjoyable daily living.”
They forgot to say beautiful, light filled, stylish and fabulous but I guess that’s obvious.
I’ve always dreamed of warehouse living but this Surry Hills conversion by takes it to the next level. Those windows are to die for, the brick on fleek and the modern minimalism the perfect counterfoil to this historic industrial building.
