On a quiet road with pretty 18th and 19th-century houses in central Cambridge, you can find this beautiful light home with cottage interiors. The light 1,600 sq ft house is located in an old shop, and the current owner has redesigned the space into an airy home.
The vibrant blue facade of the former Cambridge shop tells you the accent color that was used in the home. Almost all rooms in this light cottage-style home have blue as an accent color, from pastel to deep blue.
On the other side of the garden, a former stable for the grocer’s yard has been turned into a beautiful guesthouse with two bedrooms.
Natural light floods into the large open-plan kitchen via the original sash windows. The wooden floor, beige cabinets, and large wooden dining table give the room a cozy cottage style.
The former shop door has been converted into a built-in cabinet.
The long kitchen is divided into two areas. One part in centered around the traditional stove that s set into a tiled hearth, and the other, more private part, is centered around the double sink and features floor to ceiling cabinets on one side.
A hall lit from above by skylights leads you from the kitchen to the living room.
One wall is painted in ‘Stiffkey Blue’ by Farrow and Ball.
One of the bedrooms is painted in a vibrant duck egg blue.
The master bedroom is painted in Farrow and Ball’s ‘Borrowed Light‘ paired with floral curtains.
The master bedroom en suite features a centrally placed rolltop bath that overlooks the garden.
The former stables have been transformed into a yellow stock brick and timber-clad cottage.
The cottage has two bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. Both have an en suite bathroom.
The house is for sale at Inigo.
