Jephtha Road – Putney SW18
A characterful Putney house in a crescent of Victorian terraces, this property was transformed into a modern family home through a design that realised its potential for light and spaciousness. What was originally a series of small rooms became a seamless and open kitchen and living area, with generous doorways and high patio windows.
Spaciousness and natural light permeate the house, right through to the loft conversion, where the design’s modern engineering transforms the original spaces into a series of characterful and practical homely features, such as a window seating area and discrete storage solutions.
The design also integrates modern heating technology in the form of a mechanical heat recovery ventilation system which allows a constant circulation of fresh air whilst providing heat in a way that overcomes the usual problems of damp or dryness. The technology’s success was confirmed by the homeowner who reported that her asthma had significantly improved since living there.
The spacious layout naturally showcases the house’s bespoke interior design features. From kitchen units to furniture, sleek and interesting pieces subtly draw attention. The generous wall space also provides the ideal setting for the homeowner’s artwork, which unites every floor of the house. Through clever sourcing and imaginative design, what was a traditional Victorian terrace was transformed into a modern and characterful family home, and all achieved within a modest budget.
