You know I love Victorian houses and today I found another beauty for you. This Victorian townhouse in London is a serene haven.
The townhouse is decorated in neutral color tones like white and beige. You might think that this creates a boring and cold home but that is certainly not the case here.
What makes it even more special that they’ve managed to create such lovely rooms is that the townhouse has an un-Victorian layout. Instead of small, cozy rooms in this townhouse you’ll find large open-plan spaces.
But the layered textures, art, books and plants create wonderful warm and cozy rooms. Let’s scroll down to take a look at this beauty.
The townhouse is layed out over 5 floor. The main open-plan living room and kitchen are situated on the upper ground floor.
The room has high ceilings and an original marble fireplace to add some historic charm to this room. As I’ve mentioned before you’ll find many neutrals in this home and this room is no exception. A large black and white rug lies ties the sitting area together.
The view from the sitting area to the kitchen and the garden beyond.
The books have been displayed backwards (I know this is very controversion, whenever I post a home with books displayed this way I always get messages about it). But displaying books this way does create a more harmonious look.
Only lower cabinets in the kitchen to make it look more spacious. The bespoke kitchen has Lilac Milas marble worktop and custom fittings.
The large Crittall windows give a wonderful view over the walled garden (designed by Miranda Brooks). This view is almost a painting and the effect like adding a little color to the kitchen.
Let’s go one floor up to another open-plan living area.
One the first floor you find this open-plan sitting room. The room spans (almost) the entire floor. A large curved sofa sits atop a pink rug (for a little color). The period details, like the fireplace and ornate cornicing have been restored.
The rooms are big so it’s best to equal that with large furniture but also large art, as you can see in the image below.
On this first floor is also a tiny office, with a floating desk to save space and a view onto the garden.
The second floor houses the master bedroom suite. You won’t be surprised after seeing the other rooms that this is also a large open-plan space.
The bed sits at the front of the house. A large rug creates a warm look and a mustard yellow chairs adds a little warm color touch.
One side of the master bedroom suite has built-in cabinets to create a calm look. They even go over the freestanding bath. Opposite the bath are the toilet and double sinks.
The bedroom on the third floor has its own bathroom and leads to the large roof terrace.
On the lower ground floor they have created a one bedroom apartment. This lower ground floor has a kitchen/dinign area, a bedroom and a tv-room plus a small bathroom.
From this apartment you also have access to the garden.
Steel framed glass doors add a modern touch to the Victorian home.

Don’t you just simply love this home? It’s amazing to see how all these neutral color tones can create such a warm and cozy home. The house has come up for sale at The Modern House for £2,750,000
