Clever updates added a sense of space to a compact cottage

Moving from the city to the country usually comes with the promise of a more spacious home, a larger yard, and all the lifestyle changes that a rural setting offers. However, it took some clever thinking on the part of the owner of this house to make this former farmhouse work as hard as the family’s former London home.

Their new country house in the south-west of the capital has only three bedrooms and was no larger than the town house they had left behind. However, an expansive garden, airy double height living area, flower shed with office and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside easily sealed the deal. And it’s these special qualities, along with recent owner updates, that make this home one of the finest homes in the world.
