This London Builder was proud to be chosen to renovate a charming Grade II listed property facing Victoria Square. The properties surrounding the pretty Victoria Square were once part of the Grovesnor estate and constructed between 1838-1840, which is the start of Queen Victoria’s reign. As a nod to this, a statue of young Queen Victoria has been commissioned by the residents in 2007 and now stands in the square.
In keeping with the history of the area, sympathetic property refurbishment of the property was needed. The customer wanted a family home; however, the five storey stucco fronted property was in dire need of modernisation. A complete overhaul of the interior was done, including laying down new floors and installing new electrical wiring and plumbing.
The colour scheme was kept to a simple white with shades of grey and ebony accents. The property is blessed with beautiful large windows; white wooden shutters were installed in the living room windows to complement the dark grey wood flooring and overall colour scheme.
The previous kitchen was a mish mash of dark wood paneling and rose pink and white colour scheme. Vine Construction had transformed the space into an attractive, clean space with sleek white kitchen cabinets and integrated American-style fridge. The large skylight lets in plenty of warm, natural light right on top of a marble-styled island which the family can use as a breakfast counter.
The spacious family bathroom refurbishment gave Vine Construction leeway to install a free-standing bathtub, shower, and double sink vanity. The property previously had attractive stained-glass styled windows, that could have also benefited from secondary glazing. Vine Construction kept this concept, installing blue and clear glass window in the bathroom to let in natural light yet maximising privacy. A similar stained glass window is installed in the study.
It had been a pleasure bringing back this property to life. It is now a gorgeous family home, consisting of double reception rooms, three bedrooms, a dressing room, four bathrooms that were all tiled by a London tiler and a kitchen, with plenty of space for the family to grow.
