Bishop’s Road is freshly furnished. The front door leads to the high-ceilinged sitting room, on the right, where bright art hangs on neutral-toned walls, and there’s a designer coffee table in front of the turquoise corner sofa. There’s a period panache to the fireplace and shuttered bay window, which makes the kitchen (straight ahead) seem all the more modern. Colourful Perspex dining chairs punctuate its all-white palette, while skylights and bi-folding doors bring the outside in—the garden has an L-shaped wooden bench and a trampoline.
Inside, the staircase winds round to the double bedroom, on the left, which has a view over the garden, and straight ahead is the master bedroom. With soft grey walls and a black velvet bedstead, it’s definitely contemporary. On the second floor is a bathroom, a single bedroom and a playful bunk bedroom.
