Colourful and cosy Victorian terrace

Cosy two-up, two-down Victorian terrace in a quiet cul-de-sac not far from wetlands and local park. Our house has the usual layout for this era. Galley kitchen and bathroom at the back of the house, through the dining room. Kitchen is equipped with breadmaker, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. House opens into the hall and lounge is at the front of the house with TV.
Our little house is a colourful and quirky space that has been sympathetically modernised with retro furniture. It's an evolving process of DIY, so not a new-build perfect finish, but it is bright, comfortable, warm and welcoming.

Upstairs master bedroom has the bay window at the front with shabby chic white-painted floorboards. Second bedroom at the back of the house is our `home office` with excellent wi-fi so you could work from here if you needed to. The street is very quiet, neighbourhood cats tend to sit in the middle of the road!

Small garden at the back is slightly larger than the usual courtyard. We have a reclaimed brick patio space with Victorian style bench and chairs in a sunny corner. Great place to relax with a glass of wine or breakfast coffee. It's a wild garden full of cottage garden plants and two hedgehog houses for our resident hogs. We are mid-creation with a garden path so bear with us this summer, but still a great place to chill-out after a day of sightseeing in the local area.
