Take a tour around a period-style cottage

Period-style cottage house tour

Situated on a calm, rural street, this property is packed with character and charm, from the country-style exposed bricks to the welcoming front garden.


Stylish entrance hall

Black and white floor tiles add character to this hallway and coincide with the traditional period-style feel of the rest of the home. A smart seating area with striped upholstery makes great use of the space beneath the stairs. Crisp white French doors lead through to the living room creating an open-plan and welcoming entrance.


Rustic console table

A rustic console table is perfect for the hallway. Keep smaller items, like keys, to hand in a drawer and keep your favourite accessories on display. A large mirror adds interest to the wall above, and a hanging heart wreath adds a country-style touch to the front door. 


Classic living room

Smart classic furniture and upholstery creates a formal feel in this living room. An elegant antique-style coffee table stands out in the centre of the room and is teamed with softer touches like the velvet sofas, luxurious window furnishings and cosy rug.


Country kitchen

At the heart of the home, this country kitchen is ideal for a large family. The kitchen and dining room were knocked together to create a large open-plan kitchen-diner where the family can enjoy casual breakfasts and relaxed dinners. Fans of entertaining, the owners installed a spiral wine-cellar underground.


Coutnry kitchen with Belfast sink

This is packed with country-style charm, from the classic Belfast sink, to the plaid roller blind. Smart painted kitchen cabinets are perfect for keeping everything tucked away, while glass fronted cabinets allow their favourite accessories to remain on show.
